/ work info

This anamorphic sculpture consists of a black glass table with one of its corners broken off, with the shards standing on the table. This shape holds an image on its inside, geometrically twisted, upside down and printed in reverse. Although, if looking at it from one specific angle, the reflection of the strip can be read correctly in the black glass surface of the table. The image is a comic strip, "B.C.", where two stone age cavemen discuss the shapes and colours of the clouds, which they agree resemble the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. In the last frame they are struck with the impossibility of this comparison, as the Sistine Chapel will be built only thousands of years later.
