The bodies of all living creatures consist of an inconceivably large number of individual elements. Growth is the multiplying or enlargement of these elements and consequently of the body itself. It is a process constantly taking place everywhere, and is ultimately responsible for the size and complexity of our own bodies. Growth is regulated by an internal programme whose functioning is altered, interrupted or ended when food is stopped, the ageing process or outside influence puts it an end. On the other hand all living beings are part of a larger evolutionary process which continuously brings change and development. Similar chain reactions also appear in other fields like culture and technique.

The installation is a reference on these omnipresent and life inherent processes – on multiple organic shaped objects one can observe these mechanisms of becoming and decay.
