            A sculpture that sends us back to the origins of measuring time: astronomy. What is more fascinating than observing the stars? Astronomy led us, a few millenaries ago, to one of the most fabulous inventions of mankind: the notion of time. Unlike the mastering of fire or the invention of the wheel, time is not palpable as it is a mental fabrication. Yet, it is just as decisive in the evolution of mankind. ‘Apesanteur’ (which can be translated as ‘Zero Gravity’ or ‘Weightlessness’) is a sculpture that flies, floats, levitates… like a star or planet. The levitating disk is made of thousands of tiny centennial mechanical watch components. Carnaille was able to source these stocks of vintage pieces via connections with watchmakers and antique dealers. He then uses a powerful magnet to sort out which of the tiny pieces are magnetic and can be used for the sculpture. ‘Apesanteur’ is an invisible link between astronomy and mechanical watchmaking.
