Two photographs of a concrete structure are hung apart from each other. Composition and placement allows the curvature of the structure to create two sections of a circle. The remainder of the circle is completed by hand with pencil directly on the wall. The transient and impermanence of the pencil line is placed in contrast to the permanence of this architectural construction, who's massive scale is evident only from the size of a seagull present in one of the photos.
