Platonic Solids and a Proposal is a two part installation. Platonic solids are regular, convex polyhedron with congruent faces of regular polygons and the same number of faces meeting at each vertex. In Plato's dialogue Timaeus c.360 B.C. in which he associated each of the elements with a regular solid; They refer to Universe (Dodecahedron), Air (Octahedron), Earth (Cube), Water (Icosahedron) and Fire (Tetrahedron). With their perfectly equal surfaces, there are only 5 of them in the universe. The 6th solid, the proposal, is an arrow of the darts game. It refers to the life; its imperfection and its unpredictability.

In Plato's dialogues it is said that one should think not only with his/her senses but also with it's idea. He also mentioned the importance of the conceptualization besides the images. This darts game has no consequences, no target; just the process. There is no such thing as consequence. Like life itself.
