Spira is an interactive picture. Using the magnetic principle of inductive charging, it frames our telephone, giving it a place of honour in the home atmosphere.

The way of charging changes completely, and in spite of the power of gravity, we are challenged to let the telephone hung up, keeping us informed of the current time and state of the battery.

The telephone puts aside its usual functions and reinvents itself to become a key: its presence allows energy to spread to make the (heat-sensitive) painting react. This is how a new image appears.
