Damascus is the oldest capital in the world. A beautiful city with its jasmine and its close lined up houses. These houses have many windows and every window hides different stories and tales. They could either be warm, good and welcoming – or they might be dark, harsh and filled with agony. During my childhood, I saw these windows with light gleaming from them, a glow that lit from within and welcomed everyone who saw it to come and love it.
This piece reflects the situation of the integration of communities in one area to create one artistic unit. Because our diversity and different backgrounds only make the fabrication of the lives and country we live in all the more beautiful. For a piece of art to continue giving its best, it must contain the fantastic multiple mixtures of greatness that differ from one window to the other and with that mixture you reach a powerful unity that moves this structure forward.
