Materialization of Time according to Timaeus / Acrylic over tabletop / 1m x 1m
The infinity of time projected in a present configuration of matter. The representation of an Ouroboros -a circular being, bitting its own tail, symbolizing the self generative form of the circle- as a gradation of colour -a progression / regeneration of itself- painted over a table top, a feeble piece of furniture infested with weevil, that was once a walnut tree that got struck by lightning and turned into a table.
“Such was the whole plan of the eternal God about the god that was to be, to whom for this reason he gave a body, smooth and even, having a surface in every direction equi- distant from the centre, a body entire and per- fect, and formed out of perfect bodies. And in the centre he put the soul, which he diffused throughout the body, making it also to be the exterior environment of it; and he made the universe a circle moving in a circle, one and solitary, yet by reason of its excellence able to converse with itself, and needing no other friendship or acquaintance. Having these purposes in view he created the world a blessed god.”
