The sculpture titled „Wo ist Tom?“ is the first work in the series of impact works created by the use of a construction crane. A 200 kg heavy cylinder of clay mixed with plant fibers was pulled by the crane together with the artist (secured by a harness on the crane hook) to a height of 24 meters. The object has now been released from the hook by cutting the steel rope with a bolt cutter. The winding of the steel rope caused a rotational movement during the free fall, which caused the shape to be twisted like a screw.
