The series of works ‘Escape’ present the desire to stratify previously destroyed nature. The degradation of materials, through rust as a motif, continues off the project that was started two years ago, in digital form in the form of an alarm. A reminder of deconstruction, and destruction, but the desire to exist. The goal is to adapt to the times, to understand transience, but to save what is known and what is current to minimise the act of decay. Depiction of decay as a totem while the abstract approach to chaos, dynamics, and modification of form calls for remembrance of what follows and the current, observed state.
