To Be With Time, Ad Infinitum

Orange Peel on Wooden & Glass Box, Variable Dimensions

A family tradition of peeling an orange in the shape of two locked rings is passed on from generation to generation. The parent teaches the offspring. Once the offspring knows how to peel the orange in that exact same way, she or he must exchange the old peel inside the glass wooden box with their new one. The old peel must then be buried alongside with a citrus plant, an orange tree, giving birth to a new fruit. In turn, the same commitment will be asked of them towards their future sons and daughters. And so on. Ad infinitum.

A symbol of infinity rooted in the importance of obedience towards family - past, present and future generations.
