About his tile:
“Assimilation” means absorption into a cultural tradition. This aluminum tile provides the recipient with a
cut-out circular collaboration space. The receiver is free to interact and make an equally durable artwork in
this said space. Within this interaction, among the tiles, the site and the viewer, the exchange and
absorption continue.
