Abstract: Sanctuary , a noun identifying a place of safety , refuge , or shelter , may also refer to a Holy place , or a sacred place. It is also the concept in which I identify a home , a place that is meant to provide fulfillment to our need for comfort , safety , and growth. However , what would become of a home once it is intruded by that which negates its attributes? This question is presented throughout my work. As an extension to the inquiry , my work examines living conditions under conflict , war and diaspora especially within a child's life. Using fantasy and assigned symbolism , this body of work reflects on my experiences , as a Palestinian-American , as well as of others' who live under such conditions.
