Shattered Sky-Lens

Float glass. 2015
150cm diameter
The work considers the frame of the sky and cosmos from the perspective of our gaze at the terrestrial horizon; a gaze that is enframed through the lens of techne. Through the shattering of this lens, the reflected screen of the sky is disappropriated - a shattering disappropriation of the inscription of space-time itself. The work is a shattered, negative prosthesis; a clear mirror by which a play of lights infinitely overflows the horizon of the screen.
Our sky is vanishing. Soon we will have to learn to fly, to swim in the ether - Virilio
