Leilei Guo: "My idea of this work comes from my grandfather's home, which is a very old style
building in Beijing. There is a huge space in the center of the building, all the apartments are around
this space, so when you are on the first floor (ground) you could see the sky through this space,
and if you are on the top of the building, you look down and can see what happens on the ground.
“In the last century, here are lots of these kinds of buildings in Beijing. Nowadays, many apartment
buildings will not have this space, because they want more people living in one building which will be
good for their business. “Every time I look into this space, always thinking people living in many
different rooms, some even their whole life, like living in many tiny boxes in this world. People buying
an apartment like buying a small space in the air. It seems like people living in space beyond the
ground and heaven. Is that tiny box our own home in the heart."
