Safe as Houses

Ursula Glienecke Safe

Safe as Houses

… an English saying indicating perfect certainty and safety when in doubt.

How many people in this world are dreaming of safety?

How many are aching for just one good night’s sleep? Numerous people suffer from insomnia which is either stress or trauma induced.

How wonderful it would be to sleep peacefully and in safety just once…

A see-through, almost invisible form of a house creates an illusion of an enclosed place, of safety and protection.

The Methacrylate suggests a dream-like quality of the space. In the middle a transparent, insubstantial figure is sleeping deeply.

Is she dreaming of safety?

Is she protecting herself?

Is someone protecting her?

Or is she just a dream herself?
