THE EGG AND MICHIGAN CENTRAL TRAIN STATION is a site-specific sculptural installation and photography project created within Detroit's 100-year-old former train depot, vacant for over 20 years. The installation is made from thousands of sheet marble fragments that litter most of the 17-story structure's upper floors - remnants of the once marble-lined corridor walls. Subtitled AKA ANDY GOLDSWORTHY DID NOT INVENT THE FUCKING CAIRN, the project is based on the ancient symbolic meanings of the egg, as well as stacked stones that can be found worldwide [cairns]. The form of an egg has traditionally represented the unborn potential yet to be hatched; the new beginning; the gestating idea; the primordial matter; creation. While cairns have been used as markers of tombs, caves, or pathways; places of significance; astronomical and navigational tools; and points of mystical or religious importance. Built over the course of 18 months, the project culminated with the Egg's eventual destruction.
