Wagner Malta Tavares
Steel object, air compressor, satin, presence sensor, 110 x 210 x 80 cm
Triggered by the viewer's presence, a compressor sets in motion a sort of satin flag that gains fleeting shapes. More than simply representing it, this work presentifies air in motion. The title alludes to the Greek sun god and to the gas helium.
