about Narcissus/ROCI USA (Wax Fire Works)

In 1984, Robert Rauschenberg established ROCI (Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange) as the artist's commitment to international peace during a time of political strife, believing that "one-to-one contact through art" would lead to an understanding between people over issues of culture.

After having worked collaboratively in 1972 on a project at Graphicstudio, Rauschenberg and Donald Saff joined forces once again in 1990 while Rauschenberg was with ROCI and Saff was with his own company, Saff Tech Arts.
