The sun has no money, 2008 the artist uses two film projectors, pointing their powerful light beams on a series of rings in material acrylic. Driven by a motor, these rings project their shadow into the exhibition space, in the form of moving circles of colored light. The dynamic effect thus obtained makes the environment a
enveloping place, slightly hypnotic, where even the passing of time and its perception become an object of reflection.
