Stone from a Lebanese forest, projected text on carpet, 2013.

I removed a stone from the forest.

A forest where we used to play when we were young.

The exact original position of the stone has been documented.

I carried the stone with me, here, to the exhibition space.

The stone will stay here witnessing.

The next time I will return to Lebanon, I will take the stone back to its original place,

put it meticulously in the exact position where it used to be,

as if nothing has changed, or as if something has slightly changed.
