    Like many of the works in the series 'Project 3', this work is a profound exploration of the human condition and in particular the paradox of mortality. Discussing this particular work, Breuer-Weil stated: " In truth each of us is a floating soul, not rooted. In 'Mortal' I show life thriving on wooden planks that cover a large chasm. The whole structure is very flimsy, but people are going about their business very confidently" (quoted in the exhibition catalogue, David Breuer-Weil, Project 3, 9-13 Mercer Street, London, 2007, p.66).
