The collection Lights in Space, created between 2018/2019, delves into the infinity of outer space, imagining a celestial dimension capable of lighting up our dark worldly spaces. Constellations, galaxies, stars and comets are dropping down to earth from the obscurity of the universe and yet, as they shine, they are not made of stardust, but of aluminium pull tabs, round bases or rings, obtained from used cans.
Lights in Space is a limited edition encompassing nine compelling pendant lightings, which are shaped to evoke those enchanting bright matters, revealing themselves in the sky only when it turns black. Each of these remarkable pieces allows us to get lost in the mysteries of the cosmos, while, at the same time, we are reminded how minuscule we are within this grandiose whole. In this orbit, thus, a simple aluminium can’s pull tab gains the power to remind us about respect and appreciation for the small stone which hosts us. It becomes an artistic palette, skilfully orchestrated to embody an action of care, which, however, does not renounce its new functional use.
