Vestige of the Decline series I-III portray mechanically suggestive forms in various states of questionable evolution. These traces of transformation speculate whether transitions to the natural result in also creating moments of vulnerability and failure.

The top components of this piece swivel on ball joints while the cast bronze screw connections freely rotate when provoked at the slightest shift in position. This freeform motion suggests a looseness or brokenness to the seemingly otherwise functional object.

Hand-carved stone is employed in this work to evoke a sense of growth or an appendage. Despite its phlegm-colored appearance, the lobate form remains ambiguous, neither revealing itself as malignant nor benign.
