“I had just removed from my studio all earlier works. The result - an empty studio. All that I could physically do was to remain in my empty
studio and the pictorial immaterial states of creation marvelously unfolded.” 

    Yves Klein, Chelsea Hotel Manifesto, 1961 

“…[architectural spaces] act, historically or culturally, as representations of estrangement.”
    Anthony Vidler, The Architectural Uncanny: Essays in the Modern Unhomely, 1992
