Det finns olika sorters människor. De som tar fram ljus ur mörker och de som beskuggar ljuset, använder skugga och mörker på ljus grund.

Food is no joking matter.

The architectural theorist Dr. Hélène Frichot believes in the idea of a living building with fluid boundaries: walls that change with the life inside them. Weather and people and time should affect buildings for the better. Space stretches to accommodate life.

If we’re all in a room together and we laugh together, 
we’re temporarily in agreement.
 We’ve also sounded-out our thinking. We make
a noise that shows what we’re thinking, so
laughing together is a way of thinking together.
Just as dancing together at a wedding is a
way of thinking together, or walking together
through a field is a way of thinking together. It’s
immediately sociable and participatory.

No one can work in a vacuum. Influences are very important, but just as important is how one uses them, and for that one needs time. A person can take only that part which must feed him and which is valuable for his work, which strengthens its growth.

Frantisek Tröster




Far from wanting to posses you in linking myself to you, I preserve a 'to', a safeguard of the in-direction between us – I Love to You, and not: I love you. This 'to' safeguards a place of transcendence between us, a place of respect which is both obligated and desired, a place of possible alliance.

For Irigaray the potential of the insertion of the word 'to' into the phrase 'I love you' making 'I love to you' suggest a new social order of relations between two, were both 'I' and 'you' are related as different subjects, rather than as subject and object. Prepositions possess a strong suggestive role, allowing us to think more specifically about how we construct and can change relationships between subjects and objects, and between people, places and things. As philosopher Michel Serres has observed, for such small words, prepositions have the potential to change everything around them.
