Asher Works All The Time
The Office is what Asher calls a “construct”, a virtual space in the mind, the architecture of which corresponds to and summarizes a particular way of thinking. The Office is the place where Asher does his true work, alone or in collaboration with others. It is a vocational construct that overlaps, at times, with a particular physical space.
