In 'Uni e verso' the design is built up freely, playing with the idea that there is an open space to fill.
In nature the void is continually filled and here, I imitate the natural rusting process to depict beauty in decay and to describe the wider universe that's contained within.
The play on words in the title refers to a notion that marks, like words, can be used to create your own story. In this case, the marks are hieroglyphic in feel.
