Yoko Ono: You see a room with little – a space between it. Instead of a room that's packed, you know, it has air between there.

In those days, I still didn't have a life of just being alone. And then I thought, "This is a great one for a work of art to show to people that we're just half." Anyway, everything that I see here, the other half is invisible. And that other half may be something that we might see one day, but now we don't see it.
