Embracing a variety of elements, materials and subjects, it extends itself and connects other areas of knowledge, like sociology, philosophy or biology with computer software, animals, insects and microorganisms. And it lives in its time, speculative, uncertain, delirious.  The artistic universes present in this issue are diverse but explore all fundamental aspects of sculptural thought, defying its own limits, the condition of the absence of medium and art itself — this way, expanding its possibilities. Presenting and observing different realities sometimes complex, inaccessible, unstable, kaleidoscopic, they are matter in transformation, shiny and fragile.  

Because throughout time, throughout matter, we contemplate life in the eye; a beautiful and slow catastrophe. Editorial director: Celina Brás
