"ENLIGHTENMENTS 05 by ANDREA MORUCCHIO, 2000, Museo del Vetro, Murano, permanent collection, forged iron structure, 7 blown and ground crystal elements, 220x40x40 cm. The "Enlightenments" series enacts a dynamic tension between opposites: the physical and symbolic antithesis of materials, here, iron and glass. Glass points break through iron barriers, crossing potentially infinite trajectories. Thus, they present themselves almost as obstacles to rationality - a paradox, a koan, foreseer of possible and further “openings” and enlightenment.
