Richard Serra- Sheet Metal Installation

In a video about Ernesto Neto, the commentator suggested that inspiration for his pieces came from Richard Serra. Upon looking up his work, I can definitely see the links. 

Despite being an artist on minimalism, Richard Serra's large metal sheet installations have much more meaning than just a sculpture in a room. The exploration of human interaction with space and obstruction makes his work extremely fascinating. 

In a way, his work forms mazes that question the way people make choices, interact with their environment and each other. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I'd certainly like to visit the sculptures personally and explore the installation. What do you think?
