Aleph sculpture


The sculpture aims to make a representation of the short story written by Jorge Luis Borges titled “The Aleph”. Said creation was done in the space of a cube with dimensions of 20cm per side.


The Aleph is described as a ball of light that seems to have movement, for all the images found within the incredible universe.

The intention is to represent the multiplicity, simultaneity and movement that the Aleph has. The ideas were addressed by a dynamic figure that seemed to have a center from which it expanded: thus symbolising the universe and the concepts it has.

“All space was there, actual and undiminished.

Each thing (a mirror’s face, let us say) was infinite things, since I distinctly saw it from every angle of the universe” (Borges, 1945).
