Monument

Monument is a collapse to the current system. A dystopic stance to the future. A moment where the historical importance of a structure or site is removed. The fracture of these solid objects reveal a fragility that no longer mimics the power of architectures utopian cloud. The object is open as the concrete foundations rise and the geometry repeats, hashing the object with weight and stability as the scattered matter lays broken on the floor. Each component echoes the lines of powerful structures, whether it’s the chaotic imagery of Frankfurt’s financial buildings etched onto the steel surfaces or a symbol to suggest a corporation. The site remains untouched, paused and composed in a minimalist reduction. A white cube to move the redundant form into questioning. To define the installation by its current environment (Cornwall) and yet attaches to the current climate of civil war and capitalist greed.
