O Lugar do Ar ( The place of the air ), 2000

Bars of iron and bands of latex
Different dimensions

Bars of iron with 164 cm, 82cm, 41cm and 20,5cm hang from the ceiling through elastics of different sizes, forming a kind of labyrinth. The spatial dimension is given through the horizontal trajectory in the space while the temporal dimension is achieved through the expansion of the elastics in the verticality.

The whole installation has only one center of gravity due to the interdependence of all the pieces. The effect of this action (the gravity) occurs in different duration according to the different elastics, giving the installation a constant but almost imperceptible change of appearance.
