space and time - spazio e tempo
dimensions: W. cm 180 - D. cm 43 - H. cm 25,4
• it's the first of the pieces of the collection, produced in 140 cm and 180 cm versions, is a volume in mirror-finish stainless steel (original version), a body reflecting its surroundings; it also reprises an important aspect of my "Mirror Bowl" project on spatial expansion and equilibrium, which I designed for Dupont(TM) Corian(R) some years ago. For Space Carving I observed an hourglass: it has a sinusoidal profile, a symbol of energy and vibration, and a shape in which "space" is reduced, as if compressed and deformed to influence the flow and speed of matter (sand) and time perception under the action of gravity. So we are talking about space, time, matter and mass, energy, speed and gravity. Clepsydra - it's just an object, just a shape, and it still keeps me thinking!
in the contest of the Venice Art Biennale 2017, Space Carving has been exhibited at VENICE DESIGN 2017 at Palazzo Michiel, organized by the GAA Foundation in collaboration with the European Cultural Centre.
