The linoleum is used as a mould to pour concrete in and once dried, they share both qualities of flexibility and firmness. When concrete is mixed, it is initially a fluid substance before drying and it reacts to gravity like water.

By using rope and other roughly textured material placed underneath the mould, the flexibility of linoleum and the fluid concrete takes form accordingly. As it dries, it creates organic shapes and the experiments were focused to emphasize this.
