Some words on the piece in Dutch:

HOUNEK
, een lichtinstallatie van het Arabische woord voor DAAR. 
Onbereikbaar, ver, onaantastbaar staat het woord op het dak van de art space Makan House.

In de context van de stad Amman en van mijn tentoonstelling aldaar refereert het woord DAAR aan Palestina.
Groen licht is gebruikelijk in de openbare ruimte van de Arabische landen; groene TL-buizen sieren vaak de minaretten van moskeeën. Groen is immers de kleur van de islam.
