falling-failing-raising up again

Falling hurts and might leave marks. What happens after the fall? Does falling mean failing? This series illustrates some aspects of this topic. As core material I chose quail eggs, since the egg is a womb for development. The eggs are colored and hardened.

RESILIENCE. Without taking on the risk of falling and again rising, nothing new will come up. Tumbler dolls can be tipped over, they won't fall - neither will the tumbler rings.

REPAIR. Fallen and then repaired things can be  enhanced by their fall and get stronger than before. Falling and failing might be important ingredients of development.

REFLECTION. Falling, failing and rising up again would be nothing without reflecting on it. In my work, the egg as a womb for development offers also a space for reflection.
