About the artwork

Installed in a former textile factory, this artwork is like a curtain: woven and layered with complicated lines and rhythms. According to a myth in Mexico where the artist lives, weaving implies bringing heaven and earth together. With this story in his heart, the artist placed several spheres on each thread hung from the ceiling across two floors with weights in the shape of a water droplet. Displayed, these objects bring to mind the structure of water molecules in space. The artwork floating like a cloud reminds us of the history and culture of this old factory.
