People are perpetually seeking resolution to ongoing conflicts within their lives. A ceaseless push and pull; a generally fruitless search for answers to quelling these conflicts definitively.
There are no answers to be found here. Only a collective, metaphorical mirror being hoisted upon these walls.
I’d like to imagine the work being interpreted as a way to find solace through commiseration. While the majority of us may not subscribe to the notion of “beating them”, we invariably “join them” simply as a means of perseverance.
Resignation as an attempt at resolution.
