Composition No. 12 embodied what Moholy called a "new space, which was to be produced through the relations of the elemental material of visual expression a new space created with light directly. . . . The surface becomes a part of the atmospheric background; it sucks up light phenomena produced outside of itself a vivid contrast to the classical conception of the picture, the illusion of an open window . . . It represents the mastery of the surface, not for atmospheric, but for plastic spatial ends."
 
Lszl Moholy-Nagy, The New Vision (1928), in The New Vision and Abstract of an Artist, trans. By Daphne M. Hoffman, (New York: George Wittenborn, Inc., 1947), 38-39.
