Sculpture has no beginning or end. It is a continuity, at least as long as the engine that fuels it is on. It is a time that escapes measurement, unlike that of a music score for instance... On the way, a slow-moving object sort of blurs its starting point and even its internal trajectory. Its course becomes unpredictable... Slowness expands space and duration.
The colours are fairly accurate in the printed catalogue however the image does not convey the 3 dimensional and moving aspect of the original work. All elements are stable. There are feint wear marks along the rims. The electric system is in working condition. The work is in very good original condition.
