The Piaget Phenomenon

As a basis for the work, we take video documentation of the breakdown of a nerve cell, as well as its division and reaction to light. To see the morphology of these processes, their internal and external organics, to describe these processes visually, it is necessary to string sequentially second by second, shape by shape, volume by volume. Thus, sculpture grows, which simultaneously exists both in time and in space, in volume. Moreover, the volume represents time. Thus, a static sculpture arises from a dynamic process.

We use the translation of the time axis into the coordinate axis in order to visualize and reflect on what a person lacks cognitive abilities in real life.

The Piaget phenomenon is a psychological phenomenon consisting in the impossibility of comprehending such characteristics of surrounding objects as quantity, size, volume, or length of time.
