The circle in the centre of the artwork is earth and man's belief that we are the centre of the universe.The wiring is a representation of our preoccupation with being constantly connected via internet, cellphones and satellites.The blue square in the top left corner that shatters and returns back to a square is a representation of how history keeps repeating it's self and the perspex shows that we are aware of the repetition but don't change. The ball suspended in the bottom left corner is the imminent threat that constantly hangs over our heads, the ball is a time bomb on a millepede's back (our constant movement). The red scorpion is mother earth waiting to strike once she has had enough.
Ulrich Riek was born in 1964 in the North West Province, after completing two years of national service he completed the Graphic design diploma at Ruth Prowse School of art in Cape Town.
