"What we need to question is bricks, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, the way we spend our time, our rhythms. To question that which seems to have ceased forever to astonish us. We live, true, we breathe, true; we walk, we go downstairs, we take the elevator,sit at a table in order to eat... How? Where? When? Why? Describe your street. Describe another. Compare."

Further ruminating on the nature(s) of staged architecture, Sam Renseiw crudely investigated a spiralled edifice, somehow toggling between day-dream and benign nightmare, puzzled by the oozing, popular veneration of the place.

My art teacher at school constantly used to say: "It's all there in front of us, we only have to see. Be amazed boys, be amazed".

Be amazed became a great school catchphrase amongst us heathens.

I like nothing more now, of course, than to be amazed.
