'This folded-up cube sculpture represents the world of existence in the form of an abstracted city. The 'city' is contained within the cube. When the six sides are unfolded, the parts of the 'city' are revealed, but then become something else. Only when the cube is closed and the parts come together can the city be realised.'  Warren Siebrits.
