The contraposition of brass and obsidian is highlighted through LED lights that, upon being turned on, offer a unique view of the piece. The two potential states of it correspond to the metaphor in which the Sun (brass) and Moon (obsidian) create a dynamic play of light and shadow; the moon clearly reflects the natural light, as in those moments in which it remains visible in the celestial panorama during the day, while it entirely absorbs artificial light, generating a singular block in the composition when observed in the dark. The impossibility of a complete darkening works also as a reminder that solar eclipses can be seen only from certain parts of the Earth at a time.
