Fleeting Fears

September 9th 2013

 

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.
