Turf is a material heavy with memories and associations, particularly when viewed within an Irish cultural context. This turf was cut and dried naturally over a number of years. Nothing has been added to strengthen its structure or to increase its durability. These rings represent the essence of the material and its capacity to communicate ideas about time and transience. When worn, these rings will change and eventually disintegrate.
