In the words of Polish Poet Nobel Laureate Wislawa Szymborska: "I aim to form a zigzag over essence."
The broken egg shell like vessels, scattered on the mossy ground of the Muddy River Park, embody this vision of "essence". They bring to life the poetic image of a precious content, spilled out or not; the fragile, the delicate and strong, the resilient and nurturing.
Light is an essential part of the piece and the translucent quality of the shells plays with the inner and outer realm they create; the "inner": conserved, protected; the "outer": laid open, precarious, to be consumed. Cracked and exposed, these fragile fecund containers speak of balance, that most dynamic of states, a perfect moment of stasis in the chaotic dance of life.
