The sculpture takes the form of a showcase in which the modeling of a mountain landscape is crossed by an infinitely rectilinear closed architecture (a corridor, a tunnel). Its truncated shape compressed between two parallel mirrors suggests by a play of reflections that it continues without interruption. Architecture has neither entry nor exit. It draws a unique suspended network forming a loop around the Earth that encircles it. The only contact that the construction has with the ground is allowed thanks to vertical tubes from which arises architectural outgrowths, certainly hermetic transparent bubbles which gradually cover the landscape. By confronting each present entity by freezing them in an instant of transition, it is a question of generating plural readings of their respective origin, their coexistence and their future. Is the desert a harmful territory or a destroyed landscape? Is the corridor a stretchable survival fortress or an invasive complex? Is the landscape a construction induced by architecture or is it the reverse?
