Because of its relationship to a wall or facade, relief sculpture is in dialogue with architecture. Here, the artist has created a “tattoo in relief” which appears as a part of the very fabric, or skin, of the wall. Architecture relies on the logic of geometry - primarly linear and planar elements - yet here the artist utilizes the geometry of the sphere in a roughly circular composition. As a result, the sculpture seems to pulsate or vibrate from behind the surface of the wall.
