GRAVITY

It controls the behaviour of bodies, both heavenly and human, distorting space and expanding time. Gravity is universal. The artist plays with the laws of physics, freezing this mass in space during its inexorable fall. Thwarted, gravity attracts the work in vain. Extraordinarily light, the sphere seems to float, like celestial figures in the cosmos. Motionless, the globe reveals through its mere presence the existence of a timeless force that transcends it: gravity, which in and of itself gives order to our universe.


« Because there is a law such as gravity,
the universe can and will create itself from nothing. »

Stephen Hawking
