Fabrication MMII is comprised of wooden pieces and foam, formed into what appears as a brick and mortar wall construction.
The “bricks” are handcrafted from birch wood and the “mortar” made of grey sheets of foam. Interspersed among the wooden bricks are a number of bricks made from cast and compressed salt.

“Between our unconscious - that subtly slips us information or withholds it - and our conscious intelligence – which accepts or discards this information - is a fascinating “membrane”; the mental lining from which we judge reality itself.”
“The wall seemed to be quite stable, but when touched, it would gently sway from side to side, without collapsing. It became something other than a wall, and almost felt like a wave.”
