The Bell Jar

Archai Virtualis — 2021

Describing a space for madness, epiphanies and dreams, two autonomous crystal figures emerge out of precarity and pirouette in the metaverse. In parallel and perfect harmony, they bow to one another but do not touch – as if real world rules on physical distance have infiltrated the virtual sphere. The ultramodern curves describe a classical arch, an incomplete yet enclosing monument, a circle defined by air. The minimalist lines transform into volumes of light and reflections, and a swirl of I-shadows surrounding the viewer in the stone chamber-like space. Equally ephemeral and physically present, The Bell Jar manifests in the otherworld, a psychic encounter, a surreal apparition or a beautiful dream.
