I saw another one of is touring exhibits [Venetians] a few years back at the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art and was blow away to learn how many people work on his team bringing the more enormous art pieces to life.

Seeing the full installation in the gardens was like stepping directly into Alice in Wonderland.
