Artist Transforms a Mattress Inner Springs into Words

Jad Melki's "La Chaleur de L’amour & la Beauté des Paroles (The warmth of love & the beauty of words)" is an art piece that expresses the absence of presence. Using an exposed mattress lit from the inside to make it glow, Melki converted its inner springs into words and sentences extracted from letters written by his mother when she was in Sierra Leon in 1974 to his father when he was at the American Univeristy of Beirut.
