"In 'Scene of the Crime...' the living room is red. It relates to the passion. It relates also to the scene, to the crime scene, to the color red that is so much associated with anger, that is so much associated with crime, that is so much associated with passion. And then the dining room, it's white, which is so much associated with richness and a more contemplated space...In that sense, 'Scene of the Crime...' is a place that is for meditation, as much as a place that is for anger."
