An excerpt from the preface written by Lara Schoorl:
"San Juan de la Cruz said “form is emptiness.” Thus a table is a form. It is an idea and points to itself, yet it is also an icon for us to interpret through the memories it carries, and the ones we do. A table both brings people together and separates them. Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper is the example par excellence. On a more literal level, every time two or more people are seated a table they are connected while kept at a distance. Each person their own seat, sundered by the table’s surface. Yet, when sharing a table for a meal certain boundaries abate."
