Eggs stories

This sculpture takes the form of a metallic structure containing an aquarium.

Inside the aquarium an egg moves unpredictably.

This unpredictable movement is coupled with that of a pendulum moving back and forth on a regular and monotonous basis. This relationship between the two different movements is intriguing for the viewer.

The movements are intertwined but one is free and the other is structured.

One wonders, amongst other things, which is the freer of the two : the egg and its random movements, but subject to the pendulum, or the latter which reminds the viewer of an old fashioned clock?

This question is reinforced by the fragility of the egg, water transparency and glass compared to the strength and density of the metal.
