The Synthetic Monolith is Robin Peck's translation of the structural language of architecture and engineering into the plastic, representational or synthetic language of sculpture. Peck refers to this work as Anti- Proun, that is, anti-utopian or anti-constructivist. He uses materials of architecture, of the contemporary built environment and the recycled detritus from the culture of consumerism in a different, synthetic, sculptural way.
