Who watches the watcher?

A giant boulder where you can see traces of plants and flowers squeezed violently. The boulder moves rhythmically towards the opposite wall, using a sensor and a motor visible to the viewer which are installed on the ceiling. In the exact spot where the rock approaches the wall, there is a red rose attached. It repeats endlessly: the rhythmic pulse of an action and the tension imprinted with violent possibilities facing a fragile life.

The rose without its pot does not have an endless life. However before its natural end, it may be swallowed, crushed by the boulder; as visible as the traces of intertwined dried victims on the boulder’s surface. There is the figure of a guardian, a watcher. One who interacts with this rhythm: attends and undergoes..  breaks this violent infinite rhythm with his presence to guard and preserve this fragility.

(Who watches the watcher?  is the translation of “Quis custodiet ipsos customs?”. A Latin phrase found in the work of the Roman poet Juvenal from his Satires. The original context deals with the problem of ensuring marital fidelity, though it is now commonly used more generally to refer to the problem of controlling the actions of persons in positions of power, an issue discussed by Plato in the Republic.This phrase is used generally to consider the embodiment of the philosophical question as to how power can be held to account. It is used by modern authors to express Socrates’ concerns about the guardians, the solution to which is to properly train their souls.)
