A reflection on where I live: I drew a map of the northern-eastern corner of Leiden as a mirror-image on the glass. At the centre of this map are the intersection of the Kooilaan + de Willem de Zwijgerlaan, with churches, mosques and community centres marked. A transparency of vein-like branches lies in a curve behind this drawing and behind you can see a photograph of appartments from my street in Leiden north.

If you change your view, then the various intersecting lines change making the spaces between them seem mutable.
