Eternity lasts a moment.
The vice of form enhances the content, time manages to consecrate it, delivers it to the present and raises it towards the future.
By removing these variables, the result is uncertain.
What is a work of art on the day of his death, stripped of all clothing and deprived of its meanings and signifiers?
Like the human being, dust.
In a tragicomic circle of infinite returns, from dust it goes back to being dust.
From before forever and beyond the end of time, every possibility of being and not being coincides and collapses in on itself.
Will Michelangelo's David remain intact and perfect millions of years from now?
Will it always represent the beauty of the human being, even when the human being is no longer on Earth?
"Six Tones" offers an answer to these questions.
Anyone who succumbs to the incessant hustle and bustle of history.
Except in one case.
If we anticipate it, we rewrite the course.
The here and now expands becoming everywhere and forever.
Six tons is the weight of Michelangelo's David, Six tons is the weight of the dust of Michelangelo's David, hence the title of the work.
Work made in two pieces.
The piece below is the exact copy of the base of Michelangelo's David, as if our base never disintegrates, our vital bases will exist forever, which will not happen for us.
While the upper part represents the dust of Michelangelo's David and is carved from a single piece of marble that reproduces a pile of dust.
All of this was done for practical reasons to exactly half the size of Michelangelo's original David.
