SEALIGHT
August 2010, Digital Print in Lightbox, in Perceptive Landscapes exhibition.





I try, step by step, to get closer to the conditions I felt at the moment of shooting, trying to rebuild all the parameters of that very moment. SEALIGHT is shown in a light box. When I was shooting this image the place was completely dark. There was no moon or light source coming from the coast, and I couldn't even see the horizon, most of the time still visible. It's a very long time exposure image that allowed me to see what I had in front of me, I had no reference. The device showed me what was completely invisible to my eyes, with the noise and colors associated to non-light conditions! At this stage of my research, the way I worked on perception is heavily dependent on machines. The idea of a name naturally arises in me: Sensitive System is this crossroad of accidents becoming gradually mechanics and that can be substantially a particular perception of the environment.
