    “Dismembered doors, cut up and folded in on themselves also bear mirrored surfaces in a crude visual pun, in part after William Blake (“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.” William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1973) albeit via Aldous Huxley’s Doors of Perception (1954), in turn via Jim Morrison’s The Doors –and more particularly, via a much replayed performance of the band’s Light My Fire on the Ed Sullivan Show, when the band performed on a studio set dressed with hanging household doors.“ (Rob Tufnell, “Psychedelic Soul,” Jim Lambie: Voidoid, Glascow, pp. 49-51)
