Às Parcas e ao Edi ( For the Parcae and for Edi) , 1995

A sphere of glass with three mouths, water (10 liters) and three different bunches of very fine threads (steel, copper,cotton)
diam. : 0,45 m / different dimensions

The 3 bunches form a triangle of 3 different sides inside the water. They hang the piece in a tension that is emphasized by: their position in the space and the reaction of the materials in contact with the water (for example: the extremities of the bunch of cotton are fixed below the sphere height, what is related to the small resistance of this material inside the water). It provokes the senses, dealing with philosophical aspects of its physical ambiguity
