Sculpture: Garden was conceived to reveal the congregation
of ideas as they exist in the state of cultivation.
Blocks or modules of squared armatures were coated in
terracotta coloured cement in various configurations to
denote the exploration of the cube,
the natural building block shape.

Steel tubes were hung that allowed a convergence
of these objects, where groupings interacted.

The central ‘pool’ made of polystyrene, suggested
the wellspring from which the ideas began.
