n the late 1980s, the New York-based office Eisenman Architects, led by architect and educator Peter Eisenman, shifted from an investigation of "artificial excavations" as an architectural tool to a conscious pursuit of a concept he called "blurring." Blurring is not a visual effect but rather deals with affect, that is, a strategy for exploring a mind/body relationship in architecture that displaces the conventional or expected experience of space. Blurring has many different definitions -- the between, the interstitial -- and takes many different forms in the work.
