The Squaring of the Circle is created by reflection of myself, my life, my soul based on the poem ‘Local Time’ by Gerrit Kouwenaar.
I have tried to understand this poem. The efforts I made reminded me of the squaring of the circle, first formulated among others by Hippocrates and Archimedes in ancient Greece:

The mathematical proof of constructing a square with the same area as a circle in a finite number of steps using compasses and ruler is impossible.

The plate tree wood is in motion, shrinks, expands and shows its mirrors. The pieces no longer fit and nevertheless they are complete.
