"Age makes no difference, whether a sculpture's 7,000 years old or whether it was just made. It makes no difference in friendships. If you've got the temperament, if the temperament's there, that's enough."
Photographer Richard Anderson made this 6-minute video, Chris Cairns on Sculpture, Life, Art, Catastrophe and Music, in the summer of 2010. Interviewed in his Havertown, Pennsylvania studio against a backdrop of life-sized plaster figures, Cairns talks about art and his friendships with composers George Rochberg and Michael Hersch. The video images are accompanied by music by Hersch and Rochberg.
