Joachim Elzmann. Mikado
A frozen column of water gushes down into the room from above into a delicate mass. Or, is it a cold, frozen airstream that seems to flow upwards through the opening in the roof? Ethereal and transparent, its substance elusive, it is fragile and has an unbelievably crystalline lightness yet its shape is defined and sharp as if formed by a scalpel. It is as if the formation expands physically in different space dimensions. It has a magical appearance; a volatile cloud in a solidified state of mass.
