Eggclipse Installation, 2020

One of the particularities of an egg is that it changes colour when it is heated. As a symbol of fertility this attribute is used to create an alternative image of an eclipse. Videos of dozens of eggs that change colour while they are heated are composed and synchronized in a way that they resemble the moving eclipse of the moon.
