TROMPO

Javier Lovera


For centuries, humans from across cultures have been intrigued by the spinning top’s elegance. We have studied it, modelled it, and perfected its shape in order to elongate its fleeting life. This exhibit explores the top’s beauty, which is apparent not only through its almost perfect geometry, but also through the realization that the top is dependent on its cyclical path; its vulnerable equilibrium is only reached while in motion.
