« the law of superposition is an axiom that forms one of the bases of the sciences of geology, archaeology and other fields dealing with geological stratigraphy. In its plainest form, it states that in undeformed stratigraphic sequences, the oldest strata will be at the bottom of the sequence. » Cit. Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia. My idea is that Planet Earth was the first sculpture created in chronological order. If we consider a sculpture like a shaped mass of matter, my idea is not so absurd. I’m working on a series of sculptures following the same basics and recreating the same motion that formed the Earth.
