Multiple Skies (Walk Across Time)
2009. Steel construction, acrylic glass. 200 x 170 x 155 cm.
An attempt to re-direct a mind of a passer-by from mundane to planetary concerns, by bringing the sky to an eye-level to dance with.
The acrylic glass panels are mounted onto the steel structure in front of the windows inside of the small room - the big building’s polygonal adjunct space. Panels are fixed on the structure at particular angles to reflect the sky when looked at from the outside. While crossing the courtyard, one notices small patches of light floating inside the room. These light patches - overlapping reflections of the skies, multiply and float in different directions, directed by the weather, time of the day and the viewer.
