The pair of new Murano glass sculpture designed by Shirazeh Houshiary was assembled by a Factum Arte team led by Damián López and Jacinto de Manuel. Titled Aura and Twilight, the two pieces consist of 35 rows of transparent and smoked-grey Murano glass bricks selected and designed by the artist. In this case, the shape echoed in each rotation of the inner helix animating the sculpture is a seedpod.

The works were, among others, protagonist of the exhibition A Thousand Folds organised by Lehmann Maupin in New York (April 30 – June 13, 2020), which was postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 emergency. The works are nevertheless part of the gallery's online viewing room at Frieze New York 2020.
