Carbonic Light - Journey into the Black Cube, 2019.

This work facilitates an encounter with coal and minerals, for their inclusion and our reconciliation with them.

 

It is a space for the public to rediscover their qualities of beauty, cosmology, biogenesis and mysticism, and to see beyond the "commodity", beyond their use as a fuel, and at last, start to leave behind the human conflicts that surround its exploitation.

 

You will wonder about what you really know about coal, an essential element in both creation and archiving of life. You will appreciate its geometric structure, texture, color and brightness, and finally hear the sound story that is also a hypothesis about the past and future of coal on this planet, but also ours, which is directly determined by our relationship with the mineral world.

 

Coal is a fossil coal, which condenses the information of millions of years of extinction and evolution of ecosystems. 

 

However, the only use we've given it so far has been to burn it and fight each other to do it, following the ways of an economic development model that has created misleading kinds of gods we've been unable to overcome.  

It is also a part of the "Intramineral Light" series, which draws attention to ignored, forgotten and excluded spaces where there are processes, knowledges and beings whose existence and information can help us face an unprecedented planetary crisis.

Spore - Intramineral Red Light, 2019.

Spores are the fungus particles that spread through the air to expand the mycelial tissue that composes it and that forms an information network known as the internet of nature. This work refers to the geometric shape of these spores, the mycelial thread and the expansive process of the fungi.

Bismuth Fungi - Intramineral Pink Light, 2019.

Bismuth inspired me as an everlasting and diamagnetic material. Its alien nature, its geometric code-like shapes and growth patterns when recrystallized make it a fascinating and somehow mystical and powerfully communicative material. Bismuth Fungi is a tribute to all these not so well known qualities as well as to the unknown universe possibilities this mineral tells us about.
