Context: The work involved preparing meticulously hundreds of small plastic bags containing one single drop of blue ink. On my knees in the basement of the old X-Space Gallery, I placed, one by one each plastic bag on the floor, in a form of a big square. Feeling confined in the space, i became obsessed with the idea of a window. I started to trow randomly the plastic bags in the middle of the frame, breaking the pattern of the square in an attempt to create a metaphorical window where I could imagine the sky; duration: 6 hours
