2652 is the number of steps that the artist took between the Al Aqsa Mosque, the Church of the Resurrection and the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, the holiest of sites of the three monotheist religions that have had a history of dialogue and conflict.

The artist documented the walk, ground and sky between the three places, which themselves have been left white.
