Pièce unique. A collector's piece. 

This small sculpture - an animated art book - made out of ceramic and beechwood- forms part of the Blah (BLA) concept, the leitmotiv of Eve Ariza's research. 
Bla refers to the (in)communication and (im) possibilities of dialog in between beings of our species. 

The artist sees a society gangrened by the system and a way of defining where the material status, ideology and thought reside. 

She mocks the Modern Oratory, not only political , but also popular, and at the same time denounces the hypocrisy and weakness of a system that prefers the emergence, now more prevalent, of certain discourses over ethic-based sincerity.
