As for most of my installations the relational
aspect with the public is of primary importance. In Sun Being, the visitor is
invited to come into contact with the work both in a spatial and a metaphorical
sense. Part of my recent output consists of works composed of serial elements
repeated in an obsessive harmony achieved through old crafting techniques. The
primary elements are handmade -as if making a ritual, a sort of mantra- that
materialize in their global and slow development into conceptual installations.
The focus is not essentially on the esthetic composition but mostly on how the
composition creates the propitious environment to incorporate the public
physically in the installation thus giving everyone the opportunity to observe
the sensorial reaction created in this new situation. Sun Being is composed of
icosahedron paper asteroids that gravitate around an inexistent sun. The moment
a person enters the installation, metaphorically he/she replaces the empty
space and becomes the sun itself.
