Geologically, rift refers to a feature exposed through tearing the earth’s crust. An opening made by splitting or cleaving, to burst open or split. Rift is an action which exposes the space between, and makes the hidden visible. Taylor's exhibition is about transformation and metamorphosis. He is fascinated by the reorganization of material and form through process.
