The title declares the op-art-like surface with relief structure to be a post-minimal artefact. This object is not merely without reference, but rather praises the God of small things. It is a product of the taming of nature in urban space and refers to the way our environment, whether at the level of the urban context, architecture or the interior, presents itself with an abundance of functional design classics and anthropocentric demonstrations of power. Root Guard adapts aesthetically to the wall of any White Cube without belying its origins.
