Interpenetrating Structures - Perspectives - Lasers - Holography



The evolution of the series dedicated to the “Impossible Figures”, constructed from axonometric networks, led me to deal with the possibility of generating interpenetrating structures, projected with conical systems of projection. For this I studied the subject in depth, so that I was able to solve the problems I found with cubic figures set in positions, points of view and escapes that were very complicated to solve.

My idea was that no matter how sophisticated the shapes that appeared were, they were no more than a singularity of space-time. This concept should come out of the image, in spite of the apparent rigidity of the system.

I produced other representations with classical frontal perspectives as a counterpoint to the “aperspectives” that the ambiguous or impossible figures I was making implied.

In any case, to a large extent the aim was and is the study and understanding of the problem of space in painting, of being able to generate spatial networks that enable a better understanding (feeling) of multidimensional space. A little later, these representations gave way to the flying structures, with an aim to incorporating their geometry into the ethereal fluidity of air. At the same time, with the aid of the Optics Laboratory in the Physics Faculty at the University of Valencia, directed by Professor Mariano Aguilar, I began a series of experiences with lasers as a new and extraordinary expressive tool, as well as making some holographic pieces such as “Homage to Kepler” in which I interpreted the cosmological concept of said 16th century German astronomer.

In 1979 I presented an installation that visually interprets Mozart’s Requiem, with projections of laser rays in movement.
