I made this piece a few years ago and exhibited at an open air sculpture festival.
The squares are made from slate, approx 600mm square, and hung with chains from trees.
The text, taken from the French writer and politician, Vicomte de Chateaubriand, reads:
There are people who go look at gardens and fountains while empires are being overthrown
Relevant today as we watch the Middle East disintegrate. (Today I planted some shrubs and herbs.)
