Civilization is a function of boundaries.
- Anne Carson

Cubism created an entirely new picture space, completely unlike to the perspectival space of the Renaissance and its descendants; it collapsed layers of volume and object onto a two dimensional plane, charging the space between the viewer and the picture rather than the space beyond the canvas. Cubism can be incredibly intimate. Some of the best moments in the City are similar collapses, ones where the individual can at once be alone but equal with the City - moments of temporal and spatial depth where a long swath of the City can be read at once, by one, when it can be clear that civilization is a function of boundaries, and the individual is a function of space.
