First Fig by Edna St. Vincent Millay - 1892-1950
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—  
It gives a lovely light!

Alicja Kwade is a contemporary artist based in Berlin known for transferring scientific questions into artistic concepts and to explore theories of space, time and philosophy. Kwade‘s work revolves around the relationship between matter and time and how objects, and even humans are made and destroyed, changed and develope by different conditions of matter in time. The series My candle burns at both ends combines the idea of Alicja Kwades work in its truest form.
