This piece forms part of a series of the frame structures series of work. They stem from an investigation into geometric patterns of growth found within the natural world and a human and imperfect response to replication. In response to the location and the old water fountain I have created two interlocking forms which are reflective of the two molecules oxygen and hydrogen and which appear to leak back into the ground. It could also be interpreted as growing up from the ground like the roots of a tree.
