'Domus' takes the form of a giant plastic food package, crushed and discarded; the hollow shell has an interior space with the feel of a shelter. Lying on its side on the ground like a fallen statue, its smooth, sensuous curves echo the drapery of classical civic sculpture, yet while appearing soft are formed in hard grey concrete, the quintessential urban material. 'Domus' quotes from and subverts the material language of the city and its architecture. The discarded food package, ubiquitous in the urban environment, sits at a point of contrast in city living; how to shelter and sustain the body while nourishing the self.
Additional images show the steel and polycarbonate mould being created and casting of the fine concrete shell.
