There have been a lot of good questions about Miss Viola, the relationship between her and her room, the house, and the viola; But rather than answer these questions, I thought I would take you upstairs to the 7th floor...

In the quiet geometry of the space, Miss Viola's image is echoed within a frame on the wall, where the interplay between the rigidity of rules and the fluidity of organic form repeats its theme.

This corridor, with its ascending staircase, is more than a path through a manor; it can be thought of as a journey through the psyche where Miss Viola is a sort of "thought being"... Her resistance to structure is reminiscent of the human condition itself — our simultaneous desire for freedom and tendency to construct our own limitations.

The stairs rise, carrying with them the promise of transcendence.  A metaphor for the ascension through levels of consciousness and understanding.
