TIME SAILS

Time sails is a 20 meter long sculpture for the fret company sodexi

The vertical cables would act as meridians.
The work is a 20 m. long mobile.
It is made up of ropes with fiber optic cables on which the artist secured 12 sails of curved Plexiglas.
There are two light “events.” First some colors appear on the sails, creating a spectrum, through stained glass.
Then, an amber light fills the sails, marking the corresponding hour.
