"Shape itself is a language, an emotional vernacular that everybody understands. Our world is made up of shapes. We give them meaning and even profoundly when we hold a child, when we walk in the woods, when we swim in water - and when we pass through a cave or a cathedral. For me its a natural language- experiential, emotional, not in the least literal. Its not just saying 'there is space between these two blocks', its the acual emotion of the shape and the emptiness not the information, or the data. Thats what are has to do. If it doesnt touch us emotionally, its no good. "
