Surrounding Time assembles six elliptical elements: the three table-vitrines contain anamorphically distorted models of the VUB building, Leuven University, Brussels, the auditorium of the Council of Europe, Strasbourg, and the European flag in relief. The wall frames contain anamorphic representations of the Colosseum in Rome, La Maison de Force, a prison formerly in Ghent, and the HQ of The Glaverbel Corporation in Brussels.
