Five years ago, I found a song and I loved it right away. For Them by Troye Sivan, is written from the view of a child seeing another side of the world, with war, death, crying, the simplest definition of sadness. The angel-like voice of the naive life inspired me. I started forming an idea to make an art piece based on it. The book can be folded to look like part of a street. Connected by the ground beneath, this is the edge between two sides of the world in a child's eyes. There is only a short transition between two sides, but that's what "good" and "bad" mean to a child. This also leaves a question of "black and white" for adults. Behind the street, are the lyrics of  For Them as the innocent voice of a child. For them, for the beginning of their lives, which side would you leave behind?
