Almaaz are two devices found in one piece. From an entrance you can see large spheres, glittering stars in a void of reflections; the other window extends a floating universe of bodies in infinite space. An atmosphere of light polyhedra floods the entire space.

The structure of the piece allows both scenes to be contrasted and, in turn, each one generates the feeling of an expanded interior. The six mirrors that are used exert a constant rebounding dynamics of reflections and, consequently, unusual spatial simulations.
