the promise of reality
haptokinetic installation 2018

sinking into you
my skin marbles
back and forth
my desire goes both ways disappearing through the failures of its making

my love this
moment is almost over
for however long
no more of an explanation on how to perceive
will be given

The marbles are stirred by a mechanism within the sculpture. Slow- ly, they move up along the edge of the bowl until they overflow and loudly fall to the ground.

The marbles seem to lead a life of their own within the bowl. The viewer can merge with the movement by slowly sliding their hand between the cool spheres.

The ephemeral moment of the marbles is not only reflected by the semi-transparent mirrors but also in the eclipse, which is trapped in an endlessly repeating time loop.
