In which they used objects as a means for artistic expression. In the second, practical part is presented the statue, which with its appearance, use and meaning of selected materials, process work and the form - expresses the "nothing - an empty point." The statue is made up of many, differently sized wooden parts. They differ by the type of wood, cultivation and, consequently, the structure of the statue. All of these parts, connecting metal parts, which have a role of fastening articles and give solidity to the structure of the statue.
