Plato considered the octahedron an intermediary between the tetrahedron, or fire, and icosahedron, or water and thus described it as the element of air. Within the making process all elements are represented and hold significance, but what is highlighted is this element of air. It is significant that the material describes an occurrence. This occurrence is the moment which the liquid medium became solid. In this way the material describes both the present and the past, that which is present will inevitably become past. There is a sentimentality within this creation of object & it can be described as a souvenir. It is this sentimental value within the material that gives it life. In this way I am able to achieve putting myself within the work as it was my breath and hands that it's form was created. The fragility of the material is a reminder of the preciousness of that life force. Although it may literally describe a specific occurrence of time and place, it also describes a revelation within the light that highlights and embodies it's form. In this way the object becomes this souvenir of past, one that is relived through the pulsating light within it.
