Art Description

Installation: Mosaic, Plastic, Wood, Marble and Glass on Ceramic, Glass, Plastic, Wood and Other.

“Matter, Antimatter (The Antimatter Mistery)”, 2016. Mosaic and Mixed Media: smalti, marble, pebbles, plastic, metal, wood and millefiori on wooden board, direct method (40x40cm). A recent experiment at Cern with equal amounts of hydrogen and anti-hydrogen confirmed how, when they come in contact, they annihilate each other and create pure energy. Yet some matter remains (confirming the matter - antimatter asymmetry problem). Fascinating. We are so scared of our antithesis, whilst in fact - at least in our world - it should be the other way around: the black beast is indeed the Matter, eating away the beam of anti-hydrogen. Like Matter, like Man - toward anything in our way?
