Pêndulos de água dura / 1996-2003

Tubes of latex, ice and time

The cones of ice are hanging through tubes of latex. These tubes are elastic and they stretch till the cones almost touch the soil. Loosing weight through melting, they start to move up drop by drop till the disappearance of the cones... In the
end remains the very shorter tubes of latex and the water that is now already
absorbed by the soil.

The installation was at the Brazilian Embassy in Berlin, Germany.
