  •  huge scale and quantity makes basic medium like wood look spectacular
  • balance between standardisation and disorder
  • the significance of the artistic process
  • raw process of experimentation apparent in the sculptures
  • lack of context; is not representative of anything
  • symmetry vs. asymmetry
