Wish he would work with the South Bronx community to create an art and environmental space. He had one of his gargantuan pieces on the waterfront for years where the community was cut off form the water. Seems like a great opportunity for collaboration.

I visited the latest installations. What does Serra think about people using his pieces as Instagram opportunities? How does he see larger works as mini environments in which 'viewers' are enveloped?
