Before the ocean was blue

The work is composed by a motor turning at the speed of 300 revolutions per minute, and a sequence of eight sets of wheels that are reducing, in each step, the rotation speed until the last wheel seems to have stopped.

The work attempts the crossing of two ideas: The collapse of perception and the collapse of the machine.

Taking the human body as a measure of space and the duration of one day as a measure of time, the sculpture embody a ratio scale in a simple and evident system, which reduces the speed and increases the power of the rotation until both, the onlooker capacity to perceive the movement and the motor function are vanishing away.
