Structure 87 of the Poetic Message , 2011.2013

The concept of facade, primarly in architecture, is something that I have been exploring for some time. With the piece Structure 87 of the Poetic Message I explore the facade by treating it as a rigid skin by simplifying the forms and therefore only alluding to structure. Some event has occured that has left the structures hollow and the configuration of the elements evokes a sense of decay: the skin-like facades are collapsing and going to pieces. It seems as if the organic line that weaves in and out of the facade pieces is holding the entire sculpture together in a suspended state that could last one second or ten years.
