“Eclipse” (2018) is a video documenting an attempt to approximate the brightness of a coin to the intensity of the sun. The duration of the video is determined by the sudden passing of the sun. In the center of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan there is a tradition that brings good luck. This popular belief says that is a person spins around three times backwards with a heel on the genitals of the bull represented in the floor, this will bring her or him good luck. This solid bronze object is obtained from the negative space of the floor depression resulting from this practice by the people along the time.
