The wall work by Nigin Beck subtly blends into the gray stone plaster facade of the kiosk.The four panels of fine, veined marble are a reference to the plastic-veneered counter in the kiosk. For the artist food is at times the most precious thing about traveling. The engravings can be seen only up close as they remind viewers that their own point of view is determined both by their personal starting point and their destination. Beck wants all viewers from any direction and regardless of their position to be able to identify with her work. If hopes and dreams accompany us anyway the shift of one’s own physical or mental point of view is the same from each direction.
