So honoured to have my work inspire a class at the University of Chicago in the Energy and Global Environment: Science, History and Politics department. Professor Susan Dardar looks at Trans Nature Art to better understand and promote sources of alternative and renewable energies.
A new season is starting at the Chatonnière! Beautiful gardens to be discovered..

“For a country as small as 40 000 km2 counting only three million inhabitants, Switzerland produced as many internationally famous artists as Jean Tinguely, Giovanni y Alberto Giacometti, Le Corbusier, Amédée Ozenfant, Ferdinand Hodler, Cuno Amiet, Félix Vallotton, Paul Klee, Emma Kunz, Eugène Grasset, Meret Oppenheim, Hermann Scherer, Daniel Will, Patrice Stellest, Oskar Lüthy, among others.”

Imagine for a moment that life is universal energy incarnating itself, in itself, to experience limitation. No wonder we therefore can’t apprehend the infinite immensity of universal cycles with our extraordinary, yet humble human brains. Perhaps symbolizing these systems by an image that fits our scale, will help us remember that we are part of a phenomenal ensemble of chaotically harmonious galaxies and energies, that behold the solutions for us to fit in, but also the quiet power to watch us fade away as an arrogantly imperfect incarnation. As Bacon reminds us in Novum Organum, the only way to triumph of nature is to obey it. This is Little Sister.

These past years, examples of Climate change have flourished through the world.
Whether you look North or South, East or West; winds, cyclones and storms are getting more and more violent. The 230 Km/hr winds that blew lately in the Philippines particularly caught my attention. Maybe the recent studies that prove the unexplainably high levels of aluminium particles in the atmosphere can depict a regrettable aspect of the problem?
Be as it may, these phenomena are now entering my sculptures, which are now directly connected to the climate, through THE DISC. What is THE DISC, might you ask. Well THE DISC is put in chaotic motion by an electro-magnetic field powered by solar energy. It is therefore in perpetual movement. But when the temperatures around the sculpture get higher than what they should be, the system stops, and a red diode on the disc starts to blink. In the same time, a red laser shoots up in the sky through the top of the opus. The sculpture therefore becomes a climate change alarm.
