An attempt to literally and figuratively looking into the ‘void’ . What does it mean when someone is homeless. The blanket refers literally to its use by homeless people on the streets of Cape Town. However, “like a warm blanket ” refers to the experience of ‘coming home ‘. Many migrants (literally millions in Cape Town) are not homeless but roofless. The feeling that you do not belong . The feeling of being lost whilst knowing where you are. This feeling is especially represented by the lone figure on the bench. Here the materials are deliberately chosen as the porcelain figures refer to the decorations that one usually finds at home. The lead slab is normally used to keep a roof waterproof.
