The transformation of the matter brings the idea of life in itself. Birth, growth/transformation and death.
Iron is hard, dense, strong and sharp, and at the same time ductile, soft and fragile.
When it rusts it shows the caducity of a being which is going through its death, its transformation and reintegration as a chemical element in nature.
I love to embroider, sew, cutting and oxidate it, in order to try to overturn his chemistry.
