The Genii Loci collection by artist Rush Pleansuk explores the idea of the human spirit. To do this, he has put together various pieces, most notably a house structure that offers a place for the spirit to reside.

According to DesignBoom, "family stories passed on from generation to generation, received and retold, and mementos such as photographs and personal belongings of ancestors may be placed inside as a means of bringing the past closer and allowing for memories to become accessible once again." In this way the house-like artwork serves as an area to hold cherished thoughts of a loved one who has passed away, and overall aid in the mourning process.

This artwork is based on Thai beliefs and thoughts about life.
