Studio at Centro de Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía, Cordoba, Spain
Centro de Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía is a new built contemporary architecture located in a historical city in Spain. This spacious contemporary art centre where located at the edge of the historical city has gave me a surrealist imagination as a visitor. The choices of the consistence materials of concrete and steel with the minimalist design has created a huge contrast with the city itself. Thus, I tried to de-construct the interior space with the immersive artificial light and shadow and create a multi-layer realities about time and space at the artist studio. It is an inner world created by the sketches with digital light projection on the surface of the interior structure of the building.
The conceptual approach is based on the cosmological ideas about distance and time in the outer space. I imagine what would we see about the unique landscape in different planets. Depending on its own unique system, gravity, distance to its sun and the matter on the surface, It will show us various of rhythm and vibe about the time and space. The movement of the artificial light and shadow is a metaphor of the looping sunrise and sunset continuously in this imaginative space.
What if we can view the sunrise and sunset for about 243 times here.
On other hand, It could be the metaphor to human collective consciousness in relationship to mechanical system and artificial light based on the philosophical theory about ontology and reality. I found this poetic experience allows us to understand how we prescience of the passage of time under the natural law within our subconscious.
Even if we will never able to reach out to the origin source of the light, we are leading by something more mysterious to continuous to be in this ephemeral yet endlessness world.
