Life Cycle is a series of nine, unique pieces composed of currencies from countries which have experienced hyperinflation. The log represents a now worthless item when compared to the currencies' former state.
However, sprouting from the log is a sign of life - the Bitcoin genesis address is seen on the leaf and represents a way of breaking the cycle.
Fiat follows the same path as the materials from which it is derived - beginning as a seed of an idea spread across the land, but eventually returning to the soil whether as ashes burned for warmth in the Weimar Republic or composting on a roadside in Venezuela
