Jean Arp loved natures forms because he felt that nature buckled modern society’s overdependence on reason.  This piece is about the struggle between the desire to impose form on the natural world and its unwillingness to conform.  Our apparent desire to contain the wild world, to exert our power and influence and to ‘perfect’ it, is in this case exacted through geometry and high speed steel.  But this is countered by the forces of nature. The physical world corrupts, erupts, cracks, distorts, discolours  our efforts to suppress, edit or frame it.
