Slowly, They Withdraw


The wear and tear of materials, along with man made transformations occurring almost imperceptibly is a phenomenon not without significance for the sole reason they reflect traces of civilisation, marks of our everyday life and the passing of time. That erratic memory, along with different urban networks, are, to my mind, witnesses to the ever changing and growing complex milieus we live in. For instance, the cartesian planning of our cities versus the reality of our constant moving within the city. This is what I intended to develop in my work  Slowly, They Withdraw.
