Brief Abstract
Through this research, I present a concept of discovering hope and both virtual and physical comfort through the formation of solid objects from the remains of destroyed houses, during the last three wars, and convert these non-useful objects into usable, comfortable, and long lasting furniture items.  The formation process is done by adding comfort and luxury materials, such as sponge, premium leather, or fur, chrome pillars and wheels, or adding crystals, and other outputs.

The scene requires a pause at the obstruction of reconstructing homes and entire neighbourhoods which were destroyed completely or partially due to the war, to be presented in the form of an art project summarizing those scenes.
There is a chance to reveal the recklessness and excessive policy of collective punishment imposed by the occupier against civilians through improvisation in the creation of laws reflected in the behaviour and reactions of the people who are determined to remain and scarify.
The development of artistic expression and research methods requires giving more attention to this issue, which I believe needs urgent work in order to present it in a brilliant and interactive way.
