By eliminating the traditional space-making function of earth walls, a pisé sculpture isolates the material elegance of a rammed earth form.It exists as a pure volumetric expression of material beauty that is not tempered by chemical reaction or technological phenomena. The low-fi serial nature of continuously ramming earth is directly evident in the physical attributes of the pisé sculpture. The rigid exterior surface, defined by the specific dimensions of the wooden board form, contrasts the striated patterning of the interior soil. Aesthetic value is derived from the tension between the specificity of the wall's exterior boundary and it's free form soil composition.
