  • I’m interested in your exploration of walls as a physical and abstract concept. There is such a contrast between the physical, rigid structure that one might think of as a wall and “our ever changing walls” that you describe. One might portray restrictions, challenges, and entrapment. Alternatively, you have given the comforting impression of shelter, safety, and space. What inspired your optimistic perspective of these walls, which we often neglect?
