I saw Bell's light-traversed crystal cubes for the first time in the Sonnabend gallery in Paris. I was greatly impressed that he had found a way of imprisioning light. The supreme element in the universe and the most elusive: immaterial, bodiless, weightless, pure energy. In the years following his work evolved into an environmental state.
