A house is rooted underground in a worldwide network of pipes and cables. Everything we communicate through those roots is converted into a language that is the same all over the world: ASCII (American Standard code for Information Interchange). This computer language was invented before we could send our pictures in the form of pixels. It was the first form of communication between people and computers. A language as universal as a longing for the view from your old window. You can take pieces of furniture with you to your new house, but unfortunately you can’t take the tree that grows outside your window. These curtains visualize a tree that has its roots in the same ground as the house..
