The modularity is a connection to the primacy of the interplay between simple geometric shapes in historical concrete public sculpture.

The unpredictability of popcorn, meanwhile, represents both the ‘accidental’ sculptural nature of the eventual popped form and also some of the processes used in the modular components, namely the use of cast expanding polyurethane (a similarly unruly material).

This surprising mixture of parts collides some of the forlorn nature of civic spaces of the past with some of the unruliness of the wild woodland and the natural environment at Jupiter Artland.
