An empty cup falls and breaks into pieces. Every frame of this recorded movement is then manually translated into a ceramic layer that is made of the original remains of the cup.
All the layers are then arranged vertically and glued together, forming a new object that
visualizes the destructive moment. As this new form emerges gravity starts to shift 

pulling the new object into destruction as well. This cycle repeatedly keeps breaking the old to create the new, by translating destructive moments into higher dimensional forms.
