Don't really know where to begin with this work. I picked up a book while randomly browsing the library at Beaubourg, Centre Pompidou. I trust this process, and patience pays off when you discover something so striking and inspiring. As suspected, I'm not the only one who loves his work so here are some images and sources for more information and examples of his work.
My favorite fact is that he founded and taught at MIT at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies. Not all art is fluff.

As he hid himself from the public eye for much of his later life, will there be a release on the rights to his story? Will we see books and movies capitalizing on this moment? Can we appreciate the benefit of reviving history for generations who are distanced from the event (July 1969)?
