Today I laid out 16 identical recycled glass jars in a grid on my desk.
In 16 days I was meant to be starting some work with Ashkal Alwan Centre for the Plastic Arts in Beirut. Unfortunately, due to the unrest in the area, I won't make it there when I had planned.
Each morning for the next 16 days, I will fill one of these small glass vessels with the intention to neutralise the fear felt by a child fleeing Syria in search of refuge in Lebanon, now.
I will turn the glass upside down to capture the hope.
The hope of Peace.
