A. The work and the gamesmanship somehow become more dumb and more sophisticated at the same time.

B. One is reminded of Georges Perec writing a novel without using the letter E. House, House, House . . . all using only geometric fragments, fractions of platonic shapes.

D. Everything is pulled further apart, there is no more square frame for the compositions holding the elements together.

E. An assembly of volumes.
