the big electron

The Big Electron is a time(less) machine forged through the infinite expanse of existence, which eludes our limited perception. Inspired by George Carlin’s closing remarks in his 1992 stand-up special, Jammin’ in New York, where he envisions the universe as a pulsating ball of energy: it does not give nor take, does not reward nor punish and simply exists for a little while. The machine invites us to activate its movements by turning the wheels of time, taking us on a journey that traverses ancient cultures and enigmatic futures. It urges us to shelve our anxieties, find repose, and simply exist for a little while.  

the amaryllis experiment

This interactive piece features Nina's painting of an amaryllis flower, a poignant gift to Sophie
from her late friend’s family. Pushing the boundaries of conventional art presentation, the frame designed by Nandhit incorporates sliding doors interconnected by pulleys. Behind these doors, steel plates intricately etched by Sophie reveal intimate photographs of a home.
This innovative approach to framing invites visitors to actively engage with the artwork, blurring the line between observer and participant. The Amaryllis Experiment pays homage to connection and redefines the relationship between art and its surrounding context, inviting us to reconsider our preconceived notions of a painting's boundaries.
