A transition from “sculpture as object” to “sculpture as urban work” is one that changes the personal ideas of the artist to a fundamentally conceptual language of signs and symbols that speak of the purpose and presence of man in the environment. The formal and contextual meanings in Door of Peace are converted into existential values. -Danziger

Door of Peace in itself is a possibility, a creative act where the artist engages the spectator and the natural process of the environment to question themselves about the passing of time in a city. This is how Danziger’s idea is converted into a public opinion when they contemplate the piece. - Gabriela Goldschmidt
