Alejandro Almanza Pereda’s sculpture of a disco ball wrecking a fussily set table that still bears the remains of a meal could double as a visual representation of our brains circa noon yesterday. But the appeal of Ahead and beyond of everyone’s time, space and rhythm isn’t limited to its evocation of a New Year’s hangover; it’s also a beautiful and disconcerting vision of staid, quotidian life brought to the brink of destruction by debauchery. Click through to see the sculpture, which we discovered via Beautiful/Decay, from various angles, and visit Pereda’s website for more of his thought-provoking work.
