Walkable Traces, 1979

The sculptures are based on archaic ruins that function as traces of bygone eras. Their deliberate monochrome quality, derived from the grey concrete, likewise emphasizes the archaic element. They form a new, primitive architecture and setting.

Their form radiates an inherent calm and power. These elementary, organic sculptures stand between sober, functional buildings. They promote relaxation and communication amongst observers.
