A sculptural piece, made from an oxicort steel beam. The records of this process, made with a cell phone camera, were the starting point for the realization of this video art piece, putting in check dualities such as figuration and abstraction, solidity and fluidity, image and reality. The digital process becomes symbiotic to the mechanic by producing a sculpture without body or weight, established only in time.
