"The shutters are closed, the curtains drawn. The drawers and cupboards in all the rooms have been lined with newspapers, and newspapers cover the beds to protect the material. In the dark room, weight and time begin to transform: banner headlines lose significance and small items grow into legends. Place stories in this room and several days later they will be older than the calendar would allow."
