Polyhedra (a room for reading Joyce’s Ulysses) is a sort of “prismatic environment”
made up of 26 bases or faces, 48 sides and 96 angles that arrange themselves in space to form  
a  solid, closed, unitary and multiple core. Built to create the closed space of a room.

"(…)When? Now?
Well …no.
When, then?
I paid my way. I paid my way.
Steady on. He’s from beyant Boyne water. The northeast corner. You owe it.
Wait. Five months. Molecules all change. I am other I now. Other I got pound.
Buzz buzz.
But I, entelechy, form of forms, am I by memory because under ever-changing forms."
I that sinned and prayed and fasted.
A child Contee saved from pandies.
I,I and I.I.
A.E.I.O.U."
