the hands see, the eyes touch
This was the first public presentation of the sculpture EAGLE, which at that time had not materialized in its mirrored one.
This exhibition was also the moment to present the first technological AQUARIUM that contained two dancing EAGLE sculptures, one being the same as the other one.
The author colloquially described the AQUARIUM as a “prehistorical television“.
These sculptures cast in cement with gravel represent the coupling of two EAGLES, one the same as the other.
From these original sculptures, the artist conceived and realized an installation/experience which took place over one year at the Church of “Sant Antoniet” in Palma de Mallorca. It was sponsored by the Palma’s Town Council, the Majorca’s Council, and the Balearic Government.
The public was invited to a sensory experience implying sight, touch, hearing, and smell. At the entrance one could read
TO CONTAIN THAT WHICH CONTAINS YOU
SEEING IT IN DANCE AND UNION
ACCOMPANIED BY FRAGRANCE AND MUSIC
The proposal of the artist went further than the hands and the act of CONTAINING.
He shaped the two Eagles enlarging them to the extent to contain us, by sitting and laying within. The metaphysic meaning of “to contain that which contains us” thus becomes physical and tangible.
The DANCE took place in the AQUARIUM displaying a real animation of tangible shapes, produced by invisible streams.
The dance of the two mirrored EAGLES separating and uniting randomly were showing us the infinite. The UNION was represented in a 3D animation, giving shape to the impossible.
The memory of the place where the exhibition took place inspired the FRAGRANCE produced with Majorcan plants.
Several music and dance performances took place within the scope of the exhibition/experience.
Painting and writing, inspired by the exhibition were executed by Majorcan scholars following a didactical proposal and playing with an interactive application.
These sculptures cast cement with gravel represent the coupling of two EAGLES, one mirror of the other.

These sculptures, one the same as the other, are made in fiberglass to be light and moveable, thus allowing several compositions.
