Quatz Movement features three tyres whose marks reflect the various levels of wear depending on the area of the city each one is from. In an interview, Merrick said “I always loved the tyre piece of Allan Kaprow. Everywhere I walked in Brooklyn there were these damned tyres. I was thinking, ‘This is the material for me because nobody knows what to do with it’. And I always admired Kaprow. So I thought, ‘Why not quote someone that you really like?’ I mean in a material sense.”
