Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: The crumbling house around the girl represents Jess’s crumbling world as he soon figures out that the rope break causing Leslie to hit her head and drown. The girl on the top of the house is stranded, just like Jess is after a loss of his best friend. The girl on the roof signifies Jess’s memories, so he will never lose her.
