Collective Monuments series depicts a variety of sprawling unfinished labyrinths. The form and philosophy of the various structures is inspired by the architect Paolo Soleri who propagated the idea of a building as a living body. This framework conceives of the monument as a silicate organism and humans are the soft stuff inside that keep it alive.
