People do not live in the present. We are moving towards a future, as if we were going to embark on a long journey, without realizing that as passengers we are already in transit, the transit of the present. There are also those who decide to live in the past, on experiences forgetting that they consume as a burning candle the light of the moment. So we make futures, we plan futures, but the future is something unattainable. We are, in this sense, innocent headless. Children believe in fairy tales, adults in planning futures.
In random games, the black cat is lucky. People dressed in black have always caused me some fascination. In intellectuals (writers, artists, thinkers, actresses, philanthropists …) is a combination that gives the character a kind of magnetism that perhaps undressed would not have it. Play in the lottery, maybe a black cat will give you the chance to win.
These spontaneous swing dancers move their bodies elegantly to the rhythm of the music. Also after dancing for a while they will donate blood doing a solidarity action. I hope that the sick recipients of their vigorous blood will dance out of the hospitals and recover at the speed of light.
The light is whimsical, fortunately. Watch this woman, down the subway scales. She wears a very radical hairstyle. Half shaved hair, with the shell (half head) in sight. And the light, as the bold hairstyle points out, illuminates just the place of the shorter hair. A form of light that is repeated under the staggered step.
The other two photographs have peculiar relationships: the girl in the dress and the cone of circulation; the infused boy and the others who see him understood.
Modern art visited the Columbus monument in Barcelona. A necessary restoration of the statues of the base (66 ft) wide circle, with four staircases. For me, in my humble opinion, now the statues from the buttresses and against the pedestal reach the top artistic zenith. They should always be like that: wrapped in white fabrics and knotted networks. The viewer imagines the interior they hide, emulating the artistic works of Christo Javacheff. Awesome!
The sea is the canvas. The torso man is a white spot. The woman with the sunglasses and the enigmatic smile, the time. The needles of the horizon obey a certain order and a warning to the seagulls: do not rest here, or you will prick the feathers.
Photographing giants is a festive activity that modifies our human scale. We are insignificant if we compare ourselves with them. They dance and wear their best clothes. It is something magnificent that allows us to daydream and forget the gear of wealth redistribution and the intrusive digital marketing.
Sometimes photographs capture strange situations. The inflatable helicopter patrolling the city. A bike that looks like a motorcycle. A woman with sunglasses who put her hand on her forehead so as not to be blinded by light. The crosswalk crowded with babies in strollers…
On a quantum level the laws of physics overflow our cartesian existence. If we imagine the subjects as quantum particles, the photographer would attend an experiment in the Nature’s laboratory.
In the sand of a beach, during the summer, you can discover acrobats of concentration, acrobats who make the vertical to read an invisible book and acrobats who perform risky somersaults driving themselves into the trunk of a tree from a shipwreck. Anything goes up.
Barcelona’s Multiverse is a term based on the possibility of another Barcelona in a universe not visible from ours. With the title of the book in English Barcelona’s Multiverse, the author Lluís Bussé (Barcelona, 1961) takes the photomontages of various emblematic locations of Barcelona, with the intention of showing the existence of another Barcelona whose laws and physical constants would be similar to ours. It is based on the theories of theoretical physicist, Max Tegmark in the Multiverse Level I. The exhibition of photographs from the book is exposed today in the Palau Robert in Barcelona (from 21 June to 11 September 2012).
