Progressive imprint, inside the funnel.
A mobile imprint.
A shadow that’s reflected on the wall of the background, in transparency, allowing the onlooker to visualise the moment of the Imprint by an electronic process.
In order to associate iron and glass with in some priority, a spark is needed between the two matters. A clash of some kind is needed to bring attention to the television set, embedded into one of the walls of the funnel, displaying a scan of the Imprint. To show what occurs at the very moment of the Imprint. After having reconstituted in my head, the exact diagram of work that I wished to carry out, I drew the plans. I used a real worker’s funnel, bulky, metal, and non-decorative but utile. The more that the funnel will appears to be nothing more than a utility, the more will seem strong the opposition wanted with the impalpable electric signal. Its diameter is proportional to its height. The television set is placed in the center of the large cone.
To symbolize passage, there needs to be an opening.
The funnel is elevated to a height of 12 cm, in order to allow the air to pass through. An old technique borrowed from sculptor: to always make a notch at the base of the sculpture to confer lightness.
Sound sensors are posed inside the funnel.
The television set vibrates only when in contact with the sounds that run through the funnel. On the screen, only the wave is visualized, moving in accordance to the same principle as a hot air baloon. Sound waves are transmitted by the movement of air.
The funnel is not designed as a decorative piece, but as a sculpture in action, operational, despite its gigantic size.
To observe, as with a magnifying glass, the progressive detail of the Imprints moment of impact.
To visualize in the funnel, all the impressions already uncovered.
The Print is visible only when the object which has impregnated it withdraws from it. A footprint cannot be seen until the foot has moved onward.
The funnel allows to be seen what one is never shown.
The moment of the Imprint.
To see what occurs inside without ever having to enter. The funnel visualizes and displays the Imprint Progressively, the television screen captures its phantoms. The impression is trapped.
For the first time, I could live on line a true catch of prints. Its, undulation which remains whereas the voice was keep silent.
Progressive prints are accumulated throughout life and perceptibly or imperceptibly, consciously or not, modify the personality.
Near the end of its journey, when the wine leaves the funnel, only true nature remains, which still resists of each one of us and that more nothing, then, will not be able to altered or destroyed. The intimate self.
Funnel, gifted realization of life itself, beyond the work carried out.
Realisation born of the indistinct magma which needs to pass through the funnel of the ideas to make itself concrete and, like a completed table, to henceforth live out its own destiny. Passage of matter to its simple memory.
Testimony of what had once really existed.
Essential spiritual dimension that leads to the sacred.
