Sobre a série Jardim do Éden:

“Jardim do Éden is an installation produced using artificial flowers emerging from cylinders coated in black Lycra. Inside the cylinders, lights, synchronous motors and transparent polychrome discs rotate, activating a light conducting effect similar to that produced by optical fibre, generating stunning colour variations and an illusion of movement resembling insects or a light breeze. The installation imposes itself as a negative of the classical garden by opposing some of its defining characteristics. The garden as a paradigm of the notion of replacement eco-system appears here as a simulacrum of nature. However, the path of this wondrous low-tech Eden reveals the blatant artificiality in the flowers and in the light that brightens them, exposes its necessity to be presented in a daylight deprived indoor space and brings forth the mechanical sound of hundreds of motors, thus engendering the oneiric sabotage of the fraudulent hyper-reality and simulation mechanisms.”
