Description: The work is a thermal mirror of the artist body transformed into a concrete cube. The concrete blocks are executed in different scales, all with same areal surface equal to the area surface of the artists skin, starting with the artists height and dropping by 13 cm at each step. An electronic copper wire is heating up the concrete blocks from the inside to a temperature that equals the temperature of the artists skin. The work is still in progress. Currently 6 out of the 11 scales are produced. Each of the concrete blocks are presented alone in different exhibitions
