Monument to Immateriality
Monument to Immateriality begins with the confrontation between the amorphous rock and the stonecutter. Gradually, the carver will forge the rock by first creaating a cube from which he will later carve a sphere and then form a pyramid, and finally the piece is carved irregularly. The stone loses volume and matter with the carving, until the original rock disappears completely, its process of formal transformation concludes by turning into dust, becoming nothing.
