When I start to compose the idea of “Floating Ice Biography”, I had a version of these two towers. I try to merge all the images I have of tower into the structure of the work here, so it would be like a monumental architecture in an era, existing in a imageable space. The work is consisted of two towers, one is the tower of truth (mechanical tower) which has hammer and sickle running mechanical movement on the top; the other one is eternity tower (beacon), the flashing lights are repeating morse code which means “Forever”.
