This table/tablecloth is composed of 180 pieces of women shirts. Each fragment of clothing has been vitrified in acrylic and heated with an autoclave, thus becoming translucent. The light that emanates from the piece increases the brightness of the fragments. Above the table floats a pair of mobile ski cradle.
