'A Short Term Eternity' consists of a set of sculptures slowly disappearing during the passage of one night and resembling the shape of the same human body made of a wax and parrafin mixture. The figures consist of a hollow, translucent body made of wax and paraffin plus a metal wired 'skeleton' that melts the wax skin around it. The fragility of this seemingly solid bodies undergoes a constant change of shape, ultimately disappearing entirely.
