"I chose to produce a staircase construction because it symbolically combines an earthly ecosystem with a transcendental one. However, the stairs I have created are curved, refusing the possibility of ever climbing them. The wood structure is reminiscent of a theatrical stage set, rather than an imitation of reality. This is intended to reframe the religious image of paradise, satirising its sincerity and instead translating it into a prop for a play."
