Minimalist Art directly engages with the space it occupies. The sculpture is carefully arranged to emphasise and reveal the architecture of the gallery - often being presented on walls, in corners or directly on the floor, encouraging viewers to be conscious of the space. It is deliberately non-emotional.

Some details like we can not observe the painting in its entirety and at a good distance.
The painting features a shiny, metallic ribbon, twisting and turning through the picture space. Seen at arm's length, however, the reflective surface dissolves into an abstraction of lines and blobs—completely unrecognizable as a real thing.
For the Speed of Light, Rosenquist drew on Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, which describes how someone traveling in space at or near the speed of light.
He wrote in his 2009 memoir Painting Below Zero, "I want people who look at my painting to be able to pass through the illusory surface of the canvas, and enter a space where the ideas in my head collide with theirs."

I thought I recognised a mind at work...and I didn't Google it! Ha Ha!

Look at the size of his paintings - they're huge! Would have to be viewed in a gallery or large public space. I'll have to find out where they are exhibited. .
