A simple piece of string would act as a rigid linear form to constrict the space, creating four distinct chambers. The red tarp is dictated by the size of the window, as light begins to flood into the red chamber, it slowly begins to disperse into the other three.

Due to the double curved form of the structure, one can only see a section of the final red chamber, without even entering the space; leaving them yet more curious about what lies beyond the window. Once you enter the final chamber a single window pane, that is framed by the tarp, is your only connection to the exterior.
