A present constant is the connectivity of the fragments illustrating unification, The negative space allows for observation through the structure to reference external surroundings and architecture, as well as a notion of beyond. Representing a suspended infinite moment of the in between, it provides a place to contemplate optimism or pessimism, and to evaluate the opposite as a potential to question participants' nature and recognize a different perspective. The "home" a possible depiction of the earth, a country, a city, humanity, or other, will serve to aid in examining social, political, and ecological views.
