Uprooted form derives from tension of strength against fragility, as I push
towards the edge of physical collapse this theme becomes more potent.
The work is less about nature itself, but the analogy of a life process: of time and
aging, of falling apart and coming together, about forgetting and letting go,
ultimately leading to regeneration.
