Complicity exists as applique, suspension or as abat-jour. The pivotal elements remain the circle and the copper present in all other items in the collection. In this case it is combined with Murano glass art, strengthening the connection with previous narratives. Light, heat, energy and conductivity are conveyed through a glowing vein and an excess of light, capturing in copper and glass that moment when individual action reaches its completion and the consequences shine into public space. The small and versatile abat-jour represents the smallest unit of luminosity. It’s also possible to combine up to 9 units into a lighting system, to narrate the fullness of brightness and energy produced by individual actions blended into a collective action.
Copper, cobalt murano glass, brass.

PARTICIPANTS 2 RISK LEVEL 8
This exercise aims at performing the extreme dream. In this exercise one has to abandon themselves to the rêverie, while a trusty training partner remains alert to prevent the dream from lingering on a middle ground as the dream must become vertical. The exercise does not involve one’s private life, but rather the public sphere. This exercise completes the programme and develops narration, imagination and visions simultaneously and it can be combined with exercise no. 3. It is recommended to perform the exercise in maximum 3 sessions with breaks or in 2 sessions without breaks.
This exercise might be performed differently depending on your friend. Warm up with a 5-10 minute free conversation. Find a suitable situation for whispering a dream, an obsessive desire or a deep ambition and start to tell it to your friend. The person who listens plays the seducer role, so they will have to slowly inflame the dreamer’s soul and ambition. They will have to push the dreamer to dream more ardently and vividly, to dare to imagine further by demanding more to the world and to themselves. In order to optimise the job, add narrative and fictional elements.
