This work functions as a sculptural object as well as a stool. "Elements of Time" focuses on architectural fragments of time. The work is an examination of the ornamentation in architecture through the ages, piece by piece, building for building. It is about space, time and place transformed into a soft element. A place from elsewhere, with ornaments of the past, as a place for the here and now.
Coexist, but also to give a new identity to the existing world surrounding us. For the first time you can sit on a baroque ceiling or touch a cassette from the neoclassicism.
