"How interesting to think about the reciprocal relationship between the body and the spaces we build and create for it: mind and body shaping space, while space (building and garment), intentionally or un-, shapes and affects the body within in unpredictable ways." — Lisa Radon, excerpt from essay ‘Body | Building’
