The WEIGHTLESSNESS object consists of a hollow trunk of a 100-year-old elm from Průhonice which is intersected by a slant semi transparent glass panel. Intersecting both shapes creates an impressive contrast of organicity and geometry, the reflection of the inner and outer shape of the tree is offering changing points of view. The dead tree is coming back to life in a new dimension of its existence, making transiency relative.
