Umbral represents a liminal state; a state of transition.
The language of form of this object is both descending in search for the earth and ascending into the air, while a combinatorial play of mass and void seem to communicate something going on inside: a building or a demolishing of some sort. Umbral is about ‘the place in between’, seemingly awaiting what will happen next, but has not yet occured.
Liminality as a concept connects to the basic human condition of ephemerality, the notion that nothing lasts forever. Yet this object is trapped trough its materiality, unable to build up, nor demolish itself. Perpetually.
