… He lifted a finger to the sky and said:

“The infinite exists. It is there. If the infinite had no me, the me would be its limit; it would not be the infinite; in other words, it would not be. But it is. Then it has a me. This me of the infinite is God.”

Les Misérables – Victor Hugo

 

“A finger points to the moon. What a pity for the ones who look at the finger.”

Looking up, to the sky, to the infinite because it does exist, the infinite, it does exist.

The inspiration for this piece is not the quoted passage from “Les Misérables”, but in this page from Hugo’s novel it is possible to see and recognize the endless interaction between art and life, life and art.
