The free standing sculpture, Monolith (2018), presents a modular labyrinth that can grow to any size. The wax tiles feature seven different designs that fit together in thousands of different permutations, showing how simple shapes can expand into complex patterns. The work references an artefact or tablet—the symbols look intelligible but they’re not—as well as the body, the thickness of the drawn lines being dictated by the width of the artist’s fingers.
