The Thickness of Time is a series of sculptures produced with clay roof tiles recovered from the surroundings of where the piece is first shown. Shaped as our galaxy, the work questions the conception of home. The roof tiles reflect on the understanding of their initial position and function. Intuitively waved in a form of a spiral, tiles travel on spacetime. Avoiding the space of all 3-geometries, The Thickness of Time bypasses causality and manifests itself as a symbol of wholeness, a portal to new beginnings. It is a time lapse and a time loop.
