Even strangers in our own home.”  Hiraeth, a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return or a home which maybe never was; the constant nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past, a past that might be a figment of your own imagination. 
       
     
 treating every piece as an emotion,  ‘strangers everywhere’  reflects anger. anger is stripped down so it’s minimal with one form of light.    ‘this too shall pass’  reflects resolution and content. while resolution is complex, the emotion is reflected with different forms of light (lightbox,neon, LED) to display the complexity of that feeling.
