Last Space Remaining / A.

'In the plausible intimacy of approaching evening, as I stand waiting for the stars to begin at the window of this fourth floor room that looks out on the infinite, my dreams move to the rhythm required by long journeys to countries as yet unknown, or to countries that are simply hypothetical or impossible.'

INTRODUCTION


In 2013 I worked on a new set of works, I called them 'Last Space Remaining / A.', I exhibited them in a gallery in Dover Street, London. I wrote the following: 'Last Space Remaining is the combination of a professional journal with a personal collection of items and endless moments — both in short, informal jottings and through more formal, extended meditations. They engage a non-linear eternal memory bank, as if we speak of details of an hypothetical biography. Last Space Remaining is a poetic journey to find a perfect space, and the resulting recollection through that search. Wonderings, situations, ideas, moments and places, along with improbable references and impossible quotations'.

Between 2008 and 2013 I devoted myself to search, to explore, to learn. I wasn't trying to develop any body of work. I was trying to develop myself. To create myself. Also, the process of search is always more interesting than the thing searched.

But I did create artworks, videos, sounds and writings. I saw them as notes, materials for learning, for creating, for later. I was Odysseus returning home. But where is home? I called it Last Space Remaining.

'Last Space Remaining / A.' was a physical space. Allowed to be walked. As an imaginary space for learning, for discovery. I created a few sculptural works. Primal elements. I was playing with space, perception and sound. I wanted to experience this walk through this new landscape as a search, in the same way I hear the branches and leaves in the forest as I pass through. Allowing the images to enter.

This search is something that can't be completed, like education. A is the first letter they teach you to draw in school. A beginning.

THE WORLD IS A SET OF DISTINCT THINGS WITH VARIED EDGES


The World Is A Set Of Distinct Things With Varied Edges is an installation of five reactive sculptures of light and sound. Each sculpture is controlled by its own customised software. Each one has its own light behaviour. They have integrated speaker. Different sets of sound pieces were composed for each of then. The sculptures work by themselves and also as a group, interacting together in infinite variations. By walking through the sculptures you can interact with the music and create new patterns. Activating the sounds, enhancing the volume, changing the light colour. Depending on your location.
