LIGHT BOXES

The light boxes are the result of a critical reflection about the relationship between analog and digital media in the field of contemporary art, and in a deeper sense, they refer to the increasingly prominent role of technology in our daily lives. In terms of their format, they present a certain ambivalence between being digital screens, or “fixed” wall pictures. At first glance the distinction is not clear, and this ambiguity is part of the proposal. In terms of materiality, they are constructed as LED retro-illuminated boxes, with variable dimensions, which through the use of analog optical films manage to generate the perception of dynamic movement of the images that make them up. Thus, the aesthetic experience becomes a bidirectional relationship between dynamism and fixity, between the transitory and the permanent. The images have been intentionally chosen in order to reinforce the same dichotomy, but from a poetic-symbolic perspective. They speak of human memories, of remembrance, which is something that is also permanently shifting between permanence and oblivion.
