When I look at this space I hear the voices of the people who lived there when I was a child, I remember my grandmothers voice but not my grandfathers, he is silent - a quiet man, instead he has become the landscape, I wish I could remember his voice, instead he has become this place to me his voice is the buildings and the fields the soil even.
