Tension, forgetfulness, and lost time are the three elements that distinguish this project. A work that, like the sun, undertakes a slow but inexorable action; half of it is an hourglass through which quartz sand runs freely, almost as though to underline the importance of artistic thought’s timelessness.
Half an hourglass is loaded with moments: these have been given an elusive material aspect to form a cone which over time will arrive at a precise point of saturation, a halt, the instant when we passes from ideas to action; this heap of ideas hides the fulcrum of tensions, and it is this fulcrum that makes the work visible by raising the blinds.

Quartz sand, clay, wire and rope, roller shutters, hooks.
