Turning one's thoughts beyond the home and the island

Like the many young men who studied at the maritime training school and dreamed of traveling the world’s oceans, the theme of this work is the pull of the outside̶the world beyond home and village. Sculptures resembling guardian dogs were placed on the roof of a vacant house. Through periscopes set up inside the building, visitors can gaze at the outside world from inside.
