The M.C. Tangram is a candle holder that makes a full rotation during the time it takes to burn a candle. As the candles lose their mass, the candle holder starts to move. The rotation of the candle holder, around its axis, produces a continuously changing perspective. Observing the candle holder will allow you to recognize the four hidden silhouettes.

Tangram reveals the effect of energy through motion. Drawing the attention of observers to everyday processes that they are hardly aware of, or not at all.
