Escher-esque in impossible geometry, the palace is a desired ideal perched on a pedestal surrounded by walls that cannot be scaled. The title suggests that which you covet and attempt to protect can ultimately imprison you. The idyllic fairy-tale like palace is both beautiful and impenetrable. Once within, it becomes impossible to escape. The grass and concrete steps have their own realistic perspective when seen from a 90-degree angle, which are parts of a memorial sculpture erected to police officers in Houston, Texas, who lost their lives in the line of duty. The source of the police memorial further reinforces the association with that of imprisonment. In order to protect something precious, we often feel we must construct walls around it, which only results in designing a beautiful prison. The only escape is through a change in perspective.
