The work is an attempt to reconsider the role assigned to the individual in a neoliberal society. The life forms imposed by the system, where there are no new, natural changes that contribute to life, appear at work in hardened concrete structures. People who have appeared in the system's mechanism seem to have become petrified, becoming a detail for specific calculations. Cement is a homogeneous mass of several materials. Recycled for the second time with other materials, it is put in certain forms and hardened for constructive functions. During the several-hours-long performance, a concrete mortar will be prepared, which will be spread in a thin layer on the floor of the area, turning into flat "square" surfaces, which are the symbols of the petrified society.
