Solve et Coagula is the Latin alchemic term that refers to the breaking down of elements and their coming back together. It could be described as a process where the deconstruction of something stimulates the regrowth of itself into a new form. This idea was applied to the broken down, wasted materials and disused, abandoned buildings of a city which both harness this potential to be revived. Reclaimed from the streets, pieces are densly layered creating a multi-faceted surface that distorts, reflects, and reveals. This transformation of the wasted and broken into beautiful and proposive public art reinvigorates a community's sense of possibility and the awareness to create change.
