The series is a body of work created in response and in collaboration with the work of Leslie Moody-Castro and Daniela Libertado for the exhibition A Grain in the Eye of the Mountain at the MARSO Foundation in 2019. The show explored the poetic possibilities of our works and its relation to a series of conversations developes. Among many other things we talked about the container as a symbol that unfolds the materiality of the work.
This series of works was created using the velvet edge of a 35mm photographic film container. The horizon in the images is generated by the velvet edge of the photographic film magazine. In the darkroom, I enlarged the images using color filters in front of the lens to build a space with multiple color exposures.
I’m interested in the poetics of the edge, the horizon, the limit and the container. The work unfolds from the photographic materiality, also generating a landscape and in turn reminds me of the blink of an eye. I like to think these pieces remind us how powerful it is to take a step back and observe ourselves, observing.
