Sisyphus

Sisyphus is a quiet piece. It inspires awe and calm. It is an invitation to relax, at best an encouragement to meditate. It continues sacred or spiritual traditions, but it takes advantage of the means and resources of our time.

The work extends humanity's old habit of scratching the surface of the earth and working with sand. It also refers to our history of patterns and designs, from Aegean spirals to modern geometries.

At rest, Sisyphus is an innocent sand box. But it contains mechanisms, controls, and software that animate and shape its surface. It displays unprecedented skills and aptitudes to create original etchings in plays of sand and light and shadows, of geometries and colours. As each piece unfolds, it opens a new space of consciousness and inspiration.
