Summary: An interview of Robert Richenburg conducted 1968 August 27, by Dorothy Seckler, for the Archives of American Art.
Richenburg speaks of the evolution of his work through experimentation with different materials and processes; his time teaching at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y.; his views on young artists and the arts scene in New York City at the time, including Funk art, Pop art and Minimalism; his use of temporal materials and replaceable parts in his work to express his idea that "Living itself has to do with participating in the rhythms of growth and the rhythms of change." He also speaks of his work criticizing the Vietnam War.
