Encompass is an english word defined as enclose, encircle and circumscribe. It refers to the surrounding space of the sculpture as part of it. Depending on the viewing angle, its surface changes colour in a directly entangled camouflaged reaction, reflecting the shades of the environment where it is placed. Situated inside the sculpture garden designed by Mies van der Rohe, a quiet ambience encompasses the pictorial communication between body and motion.
