Pioneering Light and Space artist Robert Irwin explored the nature of perception for over six decades. Along the way, he broke a few rules.

"Short documentaries can be a kind of nonfiction poetry. Images, editing and sound are sometimes as important as verbal cues and exposition. Such is the case in Lisanne Skyler’s

'A Few Things About Robert Irwin.,' in which she backs the title artist’s monologue with a montage of archival footage and images of  the conceptual artwork itself in a way that

evokes Irwin’s mercurial methods."
