A portion of that which was once everything (broken pentagrams)

Work in progress

This series of images takes as its departure point a passage from Goethe's Faust, which tells the story of a scientist who sells his soul in exchange for power, experience, pleasure and knowledge. By exploring an era when magic was also science, these images question the capacity of physical objects to hold information surpassing their materiality.
