BLACKSCAPE
January 2010, Digital Print, in Perceptive Landscapes and Playgrounds exhibitions.





My work is based on perception, the relationship we have with our environment, and how I can finally transform the document to see something else than the environment shown on this document, trying to show what I've seen on it. For example, BLACKSCAPE. What people have seen during the exhibition is sand, coal, a desert, an arid and lifeless place, something that could be likened to Mars, to the contemplation of a hostile universe. Each series of photographs has a diversion. I established a sort of list of all the elements that make up a landscape, an environment, in the unconscious. Someone's memory that can recognize the environment in which we are with all its parameters, like sand for example, colors, shadows, etc. It's something I've realized gradually, and that allowed me to change the way of perception. This black place is a negative, and was used to be snow. Each series has its clue, more or less hidden, to find the diversion. The following series, or landscape, OFFSHORE 1 (and 2). People mostly see water, a sea, a waterfall, wave, storm, sea spray, etc. Others see a general movement, but still fields, still a storm or something similar. In the first set it was a contrast relation, now it's a scale one. It seems to be big but it's microscopic. The photographed area is not bigger than a hand. Here we see that the wind on the snow at this little scale works in the same way as it works on water on a bigger scale. Everything is real, no change of colors, cropping, etc. These are processes related to analog cameras and the picture coming from the sensor can be easily transformed to surprise the viewer.
