Cain's works frequently encounter language and literature. While texts can operate as a fluidity, a noting and a generative mining of the experience of different mediums, Cain engages his interest in the possibilities and effects of an interplay between literature and sculpture; two genres which can often oppose in influence. For Gallery Vela, Cain deals with the intersection of instruction and action, with a particular interest in facilitating and highlighting the spectators role in the development of subject and object. In this sense, the work has a strong link to time, re-collecting and memory. In many ways, these clues replicate a specific behaviour, be they through making an object, writing a text, presenting a motion or performing an action.
