Synthesis Monolith investigates the transformative properties of metal, tracing in a single totemic object the primitive origins of aluminium and steel in ores through to their emergence as highly polished artificial materials. The experimental casting method combines ancient techniques with contemporary technology, expressed in the convergence of natural and machined surfaces. The reflective exterior brings the viewer’s living presence into the sculpture’s aesthetic and form, seeking to evoke a state of contemplation.
