based on human norms, and the need for protection, walls are built to create rooms. usually, a room needs four walls so it can be called and treated as a shelter. in times of conflict, these walls lose their typical function of being the foundations of a comforting room and seem to symbolise shields of discomfort. this bloc is a single unit representing the existence of the rooms that have witnessed severe human conditions that wouldn’t have existed if it weren’t for these people to share their stories. Heavy events occurred behind these walls, thus might be heard once the ear approaches the stone. These people that are represented through the five hanged illustrations are the living proof of their own reality.
