This piece contains various elements floating around the composition interacting with one another and two rectangular frames of negative space. Amongst these elements are geometric forms such as cones, spheres, and cubes. Some appear to be receding in space while others project forward. Organic root like structures move within the piece weaving around the geometric forms.
