Summary: An interview of Herbert Ferber conducted by Dorothy Seckler in 1962 for the Archives of American Art.
Ferber speaks on the subject of environmental sculpture; deciding how large to build a sculpture by imagining the spectator's experience viewing it; seeking a sense of permanence by building sculptures that are so large; his desire to have his sculptures be light and airy and off the ground; how his sculptures come very close to architecture; and making a sculpture on the ground and having to work on it by crawling through and sitting on it, gave him a sense of the presence of the work of art. He recalls Gene Goossen and others.
