“Hotel” is an interpretation of Edward Hopper’s 1931 painting “the Hotel”. His painting depicts a woman sitting on a bed reading a letter, her shoes and suitcases on the floor next to an upholstered chair. Robert’s sculpture depicts it as a seedy place with a dirty floor, yellow stains on the walls and graffiti on the outside wall, also placing a rat behind the suitcases.
“Metamorphosis” illustrates Franz Kafka’s short story “The Metamorphosis.” The main character, Gregor, had been the sole support for his parents and sister until one morning he awoke to discover that he had been transformed into a dung beetle. As the other family members grow to despise him, they also transform into productive contributors to the household.
