Marine grade Styrofoam, concrete
Davey Hawkins' Inclusions is a low-lying, undulating installation that follows the topography of park-scape with an arrangement of cast cement vessels. Each vessel is formed and broken apart by Hawkins's collection of marine Styrofoam - synthetic blue foam that never degrades and continuously seeps into waterways, washing onto shorelines. Sited at Socrates Sculpture Park, a former illegal dumpsite and landfill, these cement blocks suggest that the archive of human intervention with the natural world is insoluble, and possibly endless.
