The installation is located in a late Romanesque church, with some elements typical of Gothic architecture, such as the three-storey construction with high windows, “where additional space has been provided for visiting the saints and the angels.”
As a sacred architecture, the church is considered to be a type of space that intentionally reveals the interweaving of matter and mind. It is based on the golden ratio, all of its measurements derive from the circle and its numbers and geometry have a metaphysical significance.
The linear spatial installation, made of translucent material resembling a spider web, occasionally catches the diffuse light from the windows, sometimes remaining invisible. It superimposes a complex geometric drawing (derived from a projection graph visualizing a six-dimensional cube) over the building’s geometry.
