"Emptiness is a presence that is not inert, it is pervaded by breaths that link the visible world to an invisible one.
In Chinese perspective, emptiness is a dynamic and active element linked to the principle of the alternation of ying and yang, it is the preeminent site of transformation, the place where fullness can attain its whole measure.
Emptiness introduces discontinuity and reversibility into a given system and thus permits the elements composing the system to transcend rigid opposition and one-sided development."

This ceramic sculpture comprised by 25 modules that can be ordered and inter-locked in various different combinations plays with the negative space as an element that expresses volume and provides meaning through absence.
