Chapter 22 of the Daodejing explains:

What’s flexible enough to be bent can then reach perfection.
What’s crooked can then become straightened.
What’s empty can then become filled.
What’s been worn out can then become refreshed.
What’s been diminished can then become amplified.
What’s been multiplied can then become doubted.

This explains the process of yin and yang. This work is about a space coming to an end, so that it may come to its new beginning.

It is my tribute to my first real studio space that I will be remodeling, and moving out into a larger, more centrally located studio.
