About the artwork:
It is in dialogue with pain that many beautiful things acquire their value. Acquaintance with grief turns out to be one of the more unusual prerequisites of architectural appreciation. We might, quite aside from all other requirements, need to be a little sad before buildings can properly touch us. - Alain de Botton, The Architecture of Happiness
This piece is a personal reflection on how we relate specific places to certain phases in our lives, especially during times of grief and sadness. A small appreciation for areas we associate with, be it as simple as a corner or a window in a house, that has helped us in some way to heal.
