  • What the hand does
    What the head does
    It is the house

    House and Event and the people in it

    What I produce and
    What I absorb with my heart
    It takes me to the bounds
    What affects me
    Makes me experience the bounds again

    Just as the body marks boundaries
    By touching others
    So does the house

    Metaphorically speaking the house is all
    My body – my heart – my mind

      The restricting form of the house
     
    It is more than walls to live in
     
    Houses often reflect in two ways
     – object and consciousness –
     Man’s individual dimensions
    The result of man’s split personality
     
    People, you know, are not square
    Neither do they think square
    Or feel square
     
    Even as a society they are
    Not bulks of staple commodities
