A kinetic sculpture that visually portrays the intricate relations between the individual and the
power structure they live under. The sculpture uses formation both as a physical process and
as a metaphorical device to represent the effect of governmental policies on individuals. Is it
reformation, is it laceration? Is there profit, is there loss?
The sculpture is a process of the artificial erosion of two stones by two identical steel files. Over
each stone, there is a steel file that glides back and forth on the surface of the stone. Two
stations move in the same rhythm, the motion is slow yet constant, creating an identical imprint
on the stones.
