Concept of Spatial Synchronicity

Quantum physics suggests that our universe is a holograph and virtual; the very concept of space and time, as we understand it, does not exist since everything happens at the same time in the same place.
In this context, we would unconsciously choose, at any moment, the variant of events that is most aligned with the level of our vibrations.
Hence the concept of synchronicity, where everything that happens does not happen by chance.
Every element in this sculpture was created without a preparatory drawing and assembled at the same time, in the same space and without an overall project… and yet not at all by chance.

Science and Knowledge

A shiny, perfect inner sphere, a pearl, the point of arrival of our knowledge, of our interiority.
To reach that perfection an intricate labyrinth made up of biomorphic networks that envelop the sphere, symbolically the paths of life, often not easy, sometimes dark and tortuous.
Man has always aspired to the absolute, to purity to find his deepest nature.
Science with modern quantum physics, an indispensable tool to get to knowledge, to try to understand who we are, to get closer to immortality.
