inspired by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (contextuality)

the artist behind this and other interiors

Quote from Harvard Design Magazine

"The underground world of Imaginary Prisons is dramatic, but it is an ominous spectacle. In these enormous rooms, it's hard to find a stable place to orient ourselves. We are overpowered by gigantic structures, but we can neither trace their foundations nor figure out their functions. Cables and stairways slash through the sky, but it's difficult to say where they are going or why. If we move our eyes only slightly, we are forced to shift our perspective radically, and we may find it hard to shift back. All the visual elements of this world seem to clash and contradict. This must be the purest "negative space" ever envisioned. The light is weird: how can such vast darkness yield such clear, precise images of details?

Here Piranesi prefigures the great 20th-century black-and-white photographers"

In here you are just a number and the guard stops you from escaping

(Photo doesn´t have to be beautiful or dramatic, I think. It can also be "triste" (fr.) and show not only the "bright sides of life")
