    Description

    Serapeum Helios (after the Gulf War), 2021.

    desert sand, biopolymer, magnets, wood; 35x35x170cm


    A sand object in the shape of a Trimble GCS900 GPS antenna for bulldozers floats in a magnetic field. In this form, the artefact becomes reminiscent of landmines and spaceships.
    According to legend, the Serapeum temple in Alexandria, built under Ptolemy I around 300 BCE, featured a floating Helios statue, the first reported instance of magnetic levitation.
    Helios, god of the sun, is also the all-seeing god. While driving the sun chariot across the sky, nothing that happens on earth remains hidden from his view.
