It appears to be monumental only because it's art.
- Christo

- Christo

If some of our works are symphonies,
then wrapped walkways was chamber music.
- Christo

We have created indoor installations inside museums,
like the Wrapped Floor at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago in 1968,
and not monumental at all by any standards.

To keep that absolute freedom we cannot be obliged to anyone.
- Christo

But now, today, we don't know if Over the River is
truly the next project to be realized,
because something very nice happened to our life in November in New York.
- Christo

Therefore we have to go over the fact that all human
beings are afraid by what is new.
It is our work to convince them that they will enjoy it,
and even if they don't, to allow us just for 14 days
to create that work of art.
- Christo

The other work we started in 1992, it is called Over the River,
Project for the Arkansas River in the state of Colorado,
we haven't got the permit yet.
And, we are working at both of those,
trying to get the permit.
Therefore, we do not know which one will be realized next.
- Christo

And for every project, because it takes years,
you can see the early drawings and collages as just a simple,
vague idea, and through the years and through the negotiations of getting the permit,
you see that every detail is now clarified.
- Christo

People think our work is monumental because it's art,
but human beings do much bigger things:
they build giant airports,
highways for thousands of miles, much,
much bigger than what we create.
- Christo

That could stay, not forever, because we believe that
nothing exists that is forever,
not even the dinosaurs, but if well maintained,
it could remain for four to five thousand years.
And that is definitely not forever.
- Christo

Now, to describe the process of the Wrapped Reichstag,
which went from 1971 to '95, there is an entire book about that,
because each one of our projects has its own book.
The book is not an art book, meaning it's not written by an art historian.
- Christo

Therefore, when we arrive in a place and talk to new
people about a new image,
it is very hard for them to visualize it.
That's where the drawings are very important,
because at least we can show a projection of what we
believe it will look like.
- Christo

We tell them that we believe it will be beautiful because that is our specialty,
we only create joy and beauty.
We have never done a sad work.
Through the drawings, we hope a majority will be able to visualize it.
- Christo

The decision to use only the name Christo was made
deliberately when we were young because it is difficult
for one artist to get established and we wanted to
put all the chances on our side.
- Christo

The other exception where we did not at all restore
the place to its original condition is the Surrounded Islands.
Before we installed our fabric, we had our workers
remove 42 tons of garbage off the beaches of those islands.
We never brought the garbage back.
- Christo
