04 Périers, France

Fred was part of the force that liberated France, but he was also, inevitably, a player in the drama that destroyed this man’s home.

I found this weapon-shaped piece of wood in the trash and burned it to represent a ruined beam from this man’s house. The two bright shards suggest a primitive house. I surrounded the house with mirror, so that when you approach you see your own eye. Regardless of ideology, we all belong to the bigger picture and we all bear some responsibility.
