PSYCHOSTASIA


The weight of our soul, the psychostasis is the evaluation on a balance that defines the last dispute and the last breath of our existence on this plane, a relationship between three symbolic arguments the weight of our acts, the evolving virtue of our consciousness, and the existence of transformation in death itself. Representing it at the Judgment of Osiris, or Hermes, Mercury for the Romans and the Archangel Michael in Christianity, all of them portraying the weighing of the soul.

CONCEPT DESIGN   I   CG CONCEPT


This Concept Design was developed under the premise of transformation or change, for which each element describes an underlying concept of psychostasia. Even in its very very form it tells us about the destination, where it makes no mention of the past or the future, but rather the turning point of every story. The now as an object and symbol in its own right.









The Eye and the Weight
Two spheres, one white and the other black. As opposed to each other. The eye, 
the lived, the measured and collected acts in the object that captures the light. 
The black sphere, the Peso, like small in shape, but deep like the universe, and 
making part of the instrument of balance, because it will always tell us the absolute.  


Flowers and Crystal 
They represent the nature of all thought as an orography of what is created by being. 
Encapsulated and alive at the same time.








This is a representation and visual concept of the psychostasis.







The Woman in the Light
It represents death and the virtue of conscience, at the moment of recognizing 
this instant and the end of it.


The Balance​​​​​​​
The same geometry from where it starts to the present, 
where it shows us what is up and down, even the horizon.

Start with a basic 3D head model to make a black and white light study. 
Then visual research brought in some structures to consider be placed.

A very powerful influence was The Beaune Altarpiece (or The Last Judgement) 
made by Rogier Van Der Weyden.
