There has been a trend of overhauling and revitalizing old houses, so that tiles that would have otherwise been sealed in cement boards and composite floors can be seen again. These tiles have traveled through time and space, communicating their unique textures. Under the exaggerated interior decoration, and through the rebuilds, the tiles sustain their tranquility. Cracks and broken pieces are inevitable, but the traces of the people who have previously lived are preserved. Their mottled surface cannot cover the vastness of time.
