In the foreground, there is a white-light spiral, metal object with neon-style lights and silver and black metallic paint accents, extended in thin layers with a brush. We obtain a granular surface, symbolism of the obstacles of human life lived in a spiral. There is also a dark bird and fish barely lit, recalling that they are also dependent on the circle of life. The bird has an enlightened eye while the fish is close to death, deprived of light.
In the background, in the circle of life, humans, plants that intertwine in the mixed light, coming from both artificial lighting (light emitting diodes) but also from the sun and the moon.
In the third plane, total blackness, as antithesis to light.The symbol of the circle holds a primordial place in the Amerindian beliefs. For the North American Indian, whose culture is transmitted orally from generation to generation, rather than through writing, the importance of the circle has always been manifested in art and rituals. Men and women, the individual expressions of the forces of the world, move and feed in life in a circular motion or in an unbroken spiral. This circle is often referred to as the medicine wheel. Humans live, breathe and move, giving impulsive force to circular motion, provided they live in harmony, according to the vibrations of the circle. Each person has the chance to one day discover a way of living in communion with his environment, following these precepts.
