Photographs of Land Art installation in Atacama and Utah, 2016 - 2017 DARK SPACE SERIES, ATACAMA (CHILE), 2016
BLACK HOLE SERIES, BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS (UTAH, USA), 2017
Cosmographies is a Land Art project that consists of an ephemeral installation with laser lights in different parts of the Atacama Desert and the Bonneville Salt Flats, where the horizon cleared and the dimensions of the space are used to establish a visual balance between the ground plane and the sky. These lasers use geometry to track space and define a specific position within the cosmos. This large-scale drawing tool allows the artist to establish spatial relations according to the sites, at a given instant and in a given place. From high power laser pointers, the beams trace lines connecting specific sites to celestial objects at great distances. For example, the cold dark cloud nebula LDN 1768 and his stellar nurseries observed in march 2016 by the Atacama Large Telescope Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) observatory, that is sensitive to submillimetre radiation.
The reach of the dense and rectilinear laser light challenges the perception of space giving us the sensation of touching a specific distance. The beams of light show a relationship of simultaneity in the distance between the cosmos and the Earth that is in continuous movement.
