reSET THEORY

Plastique Fantastique

Inflatable sculpture

reSET THEORY is inspired by a mathematical theory called set theory. It was created by the German mathematician Georg Cantor at the end of the 19th century. Dealing with the notions of element and belonging, the artists transpose this idea in the form of an oval and transparent inflatable sculpture inside which two colored spheres touch and move. Beyond the sensual and aesthetic aspect, the artists use the process of subtractive synthesis. Using magenta and yellow for the spheres and cyan for the ground, the artists summon the black. Always in movement, this work invites the visitor to rethink the possibilities of interactions and connections with the elements that surround us.
