This picture is a documentation of the homonymous site-specific installation at the Glasgow University Wildlife Garden, where three towers made of unfired clay were left to slowly decay under the agency of the elements.
Towers are familiar landmarks and beautiful pieces of architecture, and historically they are the embodiment of capitalist values. They are designed to stand against the challenges of time, symbols of a system of power that seems evermore exploitative and undisputed.
This work embodies the struggle between the fascination for the urban landscape and the will to imagine a more just and environmentally conscious future, while a viable alternative to capitalism seems yet to be formulated.
