In Zero-Gravity, a disk floats like a satellite in orbit, freed from the shackles of earth’s pull. Detached from the weight that ballasts the lightness of men, the disk twirls in perpetual rotations like a dervish in space. The mass progresses with grace in its unlikely levitation, like a celestial cloud or a myriad of stars in a constellation. The artist here focuses on the link between astronomy and watchmaking. Time, simultaneously conducting a planetary ballet in its immensity and a waltz of strings on an infinitely smaller scale, is represented in its spatial dimension, through the suspensions of these timepiece mechanisms.
