This work was undertaken at the invitation of the direction of Mac (Museum of Contemporary Art in Niterói) work of Oscar Niemeyer. my job was to relate the architecture space with my current line of research.
So I created a piece where the roof of the Museum becomes a platform for spacecraft, this place open a briefcase lined with mirrors inside and poetically collect stars.
This case can never be opened, with the risk that the stars are lost. work fascinates me in this dimension of the mysterious, and how big is the size of this infinite around us. This work was later exhibited at the Museo itself (video and object)
