Plaza

Plaza

The installation is an attempt to compress the experience of a public space within a public square. The main components of this compression are: a piece of stone, a column and a cable with lamps. The stone, a green marble from Tinos Island, stabilizes with its weight a hovering bright triangle. Although not conceived for a specific use, parts of the installation refer to objects with a specific function: the marble refers to public seating or to a podium, and the lights refer to the typical image of outdoor lighting or the decoration of ceremonies.
