Contact 2020

Contact is inspired by life in times of coronavirus. Cornelis continues is research combining marble and stainless steel. The circular steel base is an integral part of the sculpture. Its watery and reflecting surface mirrors the marble cone, creating a contact effect. In its purity of shape, the artwork turns into a symbol of social distancing, as virus spreads through droplet transmission.
