In the process of absorption, the sponge contracts on itself, creating in itself a kinetic potentiality, a vacuum that must be filled once the compression reaches its nadir. The mechanics of this demand that an expulsion take place in order to create room for what will fill its cavities. It is the cycle of inhalation and exhalation, of inspiration and expiration. Out with the old, in with the new.
In our installation, we intend to monumentalize the intimacy of the moment of contraction and expulsion, to invite the viewer into the center of the vacuum.
