Imposed Order, is composed of three words that are repeated continuously throughout concentric circular paths. As the circles enlarge so does the monotony of the language. The words are created on site solely from flour, which has been sifted into piles to form each letter. The scale and physicality of the piles of text were designed to create an illusion of permanence, in the same way that the mental action or process of language has the ability to create a solid from nothing.
