As the title suggests the work is conceptually inspired by the architectural forms that surround the site and by those found in buildings throughout the world, both ancient and new. The viewer is compelled to walk around or through the granite blocks as they collectively work as a structure, or at least their broken down quality resonates a structure that once was, encouraging the viewer to put together the pieces. Placed within a larger completed structure in the city’s heart the monolithic granite fragments may be interpreted as ghostly remnants of previous buildings serving to remind one of the processes of what seems to be an endless renewal of the urban landscape. The cityscape is analogous to the humans who inhabit it, constantly sloughing off dead skin to reveal a newer brighter facade.
