Abts began this work as a painting. While working on it she realised she was most interested in the jagged lines which were emerging, so she abandoned the canvas and cast the composition in aluminium instead. The title comes from a dictionary of place names. Abts names all her paintings in this way. She also often uses first names from East Frisia, northwest Germany, in reference to her German heritage.
