Looking outside from the inside.
Always thinking inside the box.
Days are different, but the same.
Hope vanishes while we wait.
Eat. Work. Relax. Sleep. Repeat.
Abstract actions. Abstract walls.
Home becomes our refuge, our comfort, our world.
[Each of the 2 necklaces of this series represents a floor plan of a house designed by Álvaro Siza in Porto, in the complex of Bairro da Bouça, where Ana Pina lives.]
