"I think a white world is a more humane world [..]. These white structures can be a spiritual language which makes us meditate. The state white can be perceived as a prayer, its articulation of a spiritual event. The existence in white strongly differs from darkness [..], a drama of sorrow, where all deliverance is projected to the afterworld."
