CRUMPLED is composed of a concrete and gypsum coating over a natural fiber sub-state, permanently attached to a wire mesh foundation and set in a wood frame. The crumpled structure reflects the instinctive tendency to crumple and recoil in a response to danger or harm. It also reflects our diminished self-esteem as a result of hurtful experiences.
