This work is a metaphor for human development in the context of natural laws.

The substance of this instillation lies within a concrete cylinder. The dimensions of structures’ interior space are derived from the proportions of the human figure.

 

On the inside walls of the concrete structure there is a process taking place as the sediment of the lime water creates layers which will eventually clog up the structure. The process does not have clear end. This work is a metaphor for human development in the context of natural laws.
