When you see old dry paint isn't it hard to resist peeling it? Do you feel the same when you see the cracked shell on a hard boiled egg? Because this is an interactive piece, when looking at it, I hope you feel the same. Normally guests are not allowed to touch artwork, but with this piece touch is not only allowed, but encouraged. Via the extra sense provided to you, you can learn even more about the characteristics of the materials that the piece is composed of and get even closer to the art and the artist.
The 'eggs' are made from blown glass; blown glass that was shaped by my own breath. It appears as if my breath wants to escape from its glass shell. My life's essence wants to be born unto the earth. Please peel the shells and help me be born.
