About the artwork

This work is part of a larger (and potentially endless) series of works made by the artist on the theme of human sensations. Humans go every day through many different moods, we can give a name to these feelings (happy, sad, nervous...) but it's not the real name. We actually feel something moving inside us, and most of the time we don't know how to express what we feel. So let's assume that the soul exist, that is real and present somewhere in our body, our moods are only the consequence of the shape of our soul in a precise moment. So the research of the artist is to take the "atoms" that form the soul, and with calibrate rotations and translations figure out different possible shapes, different possible moods, without giving names, just making visible the invisible. twitter account
