The Gaia project – incomplete – is made up of a large sketched drawing in pencil fixed with liquid polyester on plexiglas. It represents a sidereal space to be viewed from the bottom up: from far away one can perceive human dust particles that create a sort of vaulted ceiling suspended between dreamlike architectural structures. Gaia becomes the new earth, an imaginary interplanetary habitat for human beings; and now the “vault” of the House Museum.
