Propulsori (2000)

10 thermical prints on aluminum.
20 x 30 cm

Propulsori (Propellers), consists of ten photographs illustrating the artist's attempts to construct a perpetual-motion mechanism. The photographs showed two burners linked to each other by a metal axle and placed atop a tripod.
The flames from the burners, fed by fuel, pushed the axle to rotate, like an action resulting from two opposing thrusts dissipating the maximum amount of energy and fuel. This approach is opposed to conventional scientific research which seeks structures requiring minimum energy to function.
