About this piece:
The Phi part of the piece relates to the proportioning of the doors/compartments in Fibonacci sequence with the uppermost compartment being the unit 1 spiraling down the column 2, 3, 5, with each successive chamber height being the sum of the previous two.
Chambers revealed by opening doors not obvious at first glance relate to fascination with Archeology, the discovery of tombs and secret spaces. Surface in the compartment imparts an aura as if they once held some precious relic.
The overall column is abstracted from natural forms suggesting erosion by wind and water, exposed remnants of volcanic activity or patterns of an undulating riverbed.
