With 'In-finitum', the trilogy which started with 'Artempo: Where Time Becomes Art' (Venice, 2007) and continued with 'Academia: Qui es-tu?' (Paris, 2008) will come full circle.
The trilogy as conceived by Axel Vervoordt establishes a perfect balance through the natural time-flow between its three chapters. 'Artempo: Where Time Becomes Art' dealt with the beauty of passing time touching the world, with the mysteriousness of patina and the magical osmosis which exists where cosmos and matière interact.
In 'Academia: Qui es-tu?', the transmission of knowledge and wisdom held center stage, a fixed focal point gently rocked however by the continuous perpetuum mobile of questions and answers. The finale, 'In-finitum', will traverse into the other realm as it reaches into the universe of the unfinished and the infinite.
