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.

Light breaks forth: the burst of light, the dispersion that resonates or vibrates dazzlingly - and in clarity clamours but does not clarify. The breaking forth of light, the shattering reverberation of a language to which no hearing can be given. - Blanchot
