THE FALLACY OF THE CLOSED SYSTEM is a three-dimensional work depicting a utopian city of glass. A kind of interconnected, fragile and root-like model of transparent buildings. A work that might easily be regarded as a metaphor of our liquid society –marked by a glassy inconsistency, by uncertainty and fear– which the late Zygmunt Bauman (Bauman, 2003) focussed on.
I designed an automatic lighting array that projects the shadows of the glasswork.
