Vincent Leroy envisages Solar Quartz as a unique stone, different from all others in the volcanic desert of the island of Tenerife and made of perforated stainless steel. The light reflecting on a geodesic structure plays with the installation and passes through it and is reflected in it at the same time

The effect is infinite and deep and creates a mysterious and captivating vibration. Enigmatic and intriguing, Solar Quartz resembles a meteorite straight from space. Its slow and hypnotic movement immerses us in a mysterious and cosmic atmosphere full of poetry where, according with Vincent Leroy, everything seems to breathe: there is no beginning, no end and everything flows

It is a reflection on our relationship with speed and the distance from reality that is so present in today's world. Vincent Leroy likes to take his time, breaking every gesture that matters to him. Once again, it is the subtle blend of poetry and low-tech that sets him apart, distancing the user from the real world

A surprising mix of poetry and technology. By using recordings of messages and sounds in space, Jérôme Echenoz creates moving sounds around the installation: like loops of electronic waves. The repetition of sound becomes multiple and infinite and contributes greatly to the intriguing aspect of the installation
