Metamapa

2013. Video installation

This installation draws a map which is more sensorial that spatial. In it, longitude and latitude are projected onto a third dimension where one can perceive light, architecture with superimposed volumes and even the texture of sound.

In this way a landscape is constructed that starts out from a stage set or a model and which our eyes mistake for reality. The camera and projector lens enable the trick by means of a closed circuit that projects what is recorded live, amplifying these little objects until turning them into images closer to our scale.

Then all notion of illusion strikes us as small. The physical coordinates that tie us to space break with their natural dimension and stop being limits. Sometimes it is necessary to remember that things move around us on their own.
