As recognition of this and as an example of the contemporary local creation and of a new generation of artistic talents, the City Museum will present the artwork Momentum to the public: "From the atmosphere concept, a space A is encapsulated in a engaging space B. Beyond an isolated installed object, it intended to act as an activator of the space in which it is inserted, underlining its physical characteristics. Numerical data broadcasted by web become into mechanical intensity and get close geographically distant areas; the permanence of the architectural surroundings dialogue with the kinetic transience of the installation. Momentum is microcosmic, regular and random; it creates friction and temporary relations between the suspended substances. "
