My visual and conceptual research is based on the construction of mechanisms that are generating optical illusions in the observer, producing a visual deception in the perception. I want to question our sight sense by showing different approaches or viewpoints of a single event and incorporating the observer as a dynamic actor in the act of contemplation.
This strategy has been developed in different formats and media, visually related to the realm of Medicine and the classifications of medical samples or chemical compounds arranged in rows of glass bottles on shelves. The format is constructed by deploying multiple fragments taken from famous historical paintings (body parts, resized bodies, etc...) printed and inserted in glass bottles filled with water.
Thus, the purpose is to build up a certain state of balance between unity and diversity, between whole and fragment, states which vary depending on the observer’s relative position towards the work. As a synthesis, the “point of view” is understood as a form of interpretation and its relationship with the optic illusion phenomena.
