Cosmic Calamity

2011

Rondolini´s cosmic calamity is a version of the tempus fugit topic, a metaphor of the destructive power of the passing of time. This project was designed to participate in the Petrobras Arteba Award. Thinking about the fair´s spatial and temporal dimensions, Rondolini installed a large water popsicle that melted slowly on a bed made of light. By the time the art fair closed, there remained nothing but a piece of ice floating in a large puddle. The next day, a new ice cream with the same dimensions was placed for time to devour it.
