The sculpture is inspired by archaic astronomy. Alignments of hollow stones, mirrors, tubes, lenses, miniature monuments or giant objects, the status and scale of these constructions always seem unsettled, in constant negotiation with the unknown distance they are engaging with. To some extend, one could say that these instruments mainly measure our own projections. Following that path, the sculpture tries to measure the unknown distance between the viewer and his expectations.
