Panta Rhei

“Panta Rhei” or “everything flows”, said the Greek philosopher Heraclitus some 2,500 years ago. He meant that nothing remains the same because time constantly puts everything in a new perspective. The thinkers in AVL’s Panta Rhei are force-fed through a funnel and their excrement forms the pillars they stand on. They are the embodiment of circularity: all is constantly renewed, with slight changes.
