My grandfather on my mother’s side had his house burn to the ground three times. When his son was around the age of twenty; he was hit by a drunk driver while riding a bicycle, and suffered permanent brain damage. He has been in a wheel chair ever since. His wife came down with Alzheimer’s. I never knew either of them for the people they once were. I’ve never known my uncle to be able to speak in sentences, and I’ve only known my late grandmother to cower in the corner in fear, unable to comprehend whom the people around her are.This installation is meant to emphasize the importance of appreciating the people you hold dear. It’s possible for a person to never understand the value of what they have until they lose it.
