MTV Breakthrough Video Award Trophy

Irreverent and humorous, the trophy conceptually reflects MTV. Asymmetry, the body of a distorted television equilibrated in three cables which pass through and support.

Created in

New York, 1988



Created as something between a trophy and a toy, can be placed in any position. The absence of parallel lines and internal mirrors define different angles of the images and logo, as reflected in a Cubist perspective. Built in glass, mirror, copper and nickel.
