"Je réfléchis à d'autres lieux de ce type, [...] des pièces contenant une seule oeuvre : une plaque de fer flottante, par exemple, qui semble flotter à travers la musique, flotter calmement... Je réfléchis à des endroits dans lesquels on peut se retirer seul, des pièces qui créent une ambiance de silence, mais pas un silence stupide... comment dire... un silence actif, une sorte d'état de suspension, de quiétude."

"I'm thinking of other rooms like this, [...] rooms that contain only one work: a floating iron plate, for example, that seems to calmly float through the music... I am thinking about places that one can retreat to alone, rooms that create an ambience of stillness, of silence, but not stupid silence... how might I say... an active stillness, a kind of suspended state of tranquility."

—Rolf Julius, excerpted from "Les Lieux de Quiétude" (Rooms of Stillness), 1987
