This degenerative sculpture visually reveals the stress of calculated force on a physical material. At once frightening and intriguing, the four slabs of concrete seem to defy their physical constraints by bending, nearly to their limits, from the imposed pressure. Like engineers at a laboratory, we the viewer can only study with wonderment and curiosity the exposed effects of unseen forces on a tangible medium.
