"We want to create works of joy and beauty."
"The temporality of a work of art creates a feeling of fragility, vulnerability and an urgency to be seen, as well as a presence of the missing, because we know it will be gone tomorrow.
"The quality of love and tenderness that human beings have towards what will not last - for instance the love and tenderness we have for childhood and our lives - is a quality we want to give to our work as an additional aesthetic quality."
Jeanne-Claude, the collaborator with Christo on their environmental art projects for the past 51 years, died last week.
