Pizza boxes, graphite mirrors.
Dimensions variable.


The work refers to an unrealized project of the French architect Étienne-Louis Boullée, dedicated to Newton, the father of gravity theory, and the fundamental power which is the beginning of nearly any sphere in nature. Resembling a monument, temple or altar, the work corresponds to the ancient sun-like form. The «pizza» reminds of a broken screen, emphasizing the prehistoric fear of a fractured reflection, the superstition which arose from the ancient concept of reflection as a human soul. According to the concept, If the reflection is broken, the soul also suffers, and the person potentially dies or losing a chance to escape to the afterworld.
