the coal mobile
The coal mobile is highlighting the steps that each individual has to take in order to achieve an equilibrium state.
The basis of the sculpture is a solid and at the same time fragile piece of coal. It takes the shape of the earth from which we are born, symbolizing the beginning of our journey. Looking up, the sculpture outlines the initiatic path filled with questions, which once understood, come to balance us.
The mobility of the suspended elements denotes the versatility of humans - the multitude of directions on which we move, or the perspectives we choose embrace.
The project was inspired by Alexander Calder’s work.
