Media installation



One machine draws an infinity symbol while the other erases it, repeating the operation. In the present age, when machines have surpassed humans in terms of repetition, data, calculation, etc., the work evokes a world in which only machines continue to operate after the extinction of humanity. It invites visitors to contemplate the perfection of mechatronic automation: two machines programmed to manifest the eternal and at the same time it’s impossible realization.
