Navigating identity often promotes the ideation of self-growth within an individual lifetime. Regardless of our perceived success, our physical growth, as well as the progress of any other living being, ends in beneficial decay for the next cycle of existence. Without the mind and soul fueling the body, the vessel freely welcomes external forces to flourish within. Utilizing organic material such as intertwined clay and metal allows the body to merge with natural elements as a reminder of the ultimate transformation after our consciousness leaves this reality.
