I try to think of days when I have been out in the “hard” Mojave away from the Interstate and many dusty miles from any blacktopped roads – and have seen nobody at all. I am not talking about inanimate signs of former human presence; I am talking about human beings alive and moving about in the landscape. And I can recall no such day”.
“Scenes in America Deserta”
Reyner Banham

"Space" is permuted into a multiplicity of directions. One becomes conscious of space attenuated in the form of elusive flat planes. The space is both crystalline and collapsible.
