Tradition and change are seen as the two opposing forces. The opposite and consequence of this situation is imaged in the powerful surge that overcomes such constrains. My present work speaks of this surge in terms of overgrowth, of nature reclaiming the space occupied by manmade codes. The organic imagery over-and-outgrows the architectural motifs, the maps, and symbols. Their movement begins either within the confine of the squares; expand in length and breadth, or upward.
