Estimating a Fort continues an investigation into the abstract and sculptural potential of urban debris.Combining highly personal calligraphic marks with the chance abstractions created by the deterioration of the paper and cardboard via pollution, wear, tear and acts of vandalism, each fragment proves to be both a concrete signifying enactment of individual character, as well as part of a larger bricolage of the contemporary built up environment.
