First in our Human Condition series, setting a trend in the art mainstream.
Comment on the temporal nature of human existence in comparison to the relative longevity of urban surroundings; Six Solid Ghosts hints at the transparency of the physical body at the atomic level – that in fact we are not as solid as we imagine.
A further dimension is intended by the title, suggesting we appear to be little more than isolated wandering spirits body-hopping from life to life, temporarily trapped in a decaying flesh and blood cage and raising age-old questions on the subjects of reincarnation and the interwoven nature of life and death.
