A study of a moment. The young man, his life fleeting as a gust of laurel
leaves, he sees the whole world in a glance.
Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
- T. S. ELIOT
Inspired by Eliots Four Quartets, this piece pays homage to so many
brave people whose lives are altered by their time. The plinth fabricated in
mild steel is reminiscent of hastily dispatched munitions,or ships funnel
left to rust. Its stripes of bronze reflect adopted strength.
