The Monochrome Experience: Inertia

When a human body moves further from the (self)life of rotation it becomes increasingly more difficult to change the rotational velocity of the establishment. Intuitively, this is because the human being is now carrying more momentum with it around the circle of life and because the existential momentum is changing more quickly.

The Monochrome Experience: The Mandela Effect

How can millions of people distinctly remember something that never happened?

It is quite logical that the Mandela Effect increases exponentially in the near future due mainly to the cocktail of information that surrounds us. Some believers in conspiracy theory may think that the ME is a System Error. The matrix of the system produces the ME because is incapable of governing a chaotic system in a stable and scalable order (Lagrangians, variational principles, physical symmetries, etc.). But I emphasize that complexity is almost unbounded. ME will give us work to do for many centuries more. That might also apply to the foundations of quantum physics, and its relation to complexity*.

The Monochrome Experience: Planning Futures

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.

The Monochrome Experience: Black Cat

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.

The Monochrome Experience: Whimsy 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.

The Monochrome Experience: Wrapped Statues in White Cloth and Nets

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 Monochrome Experience: Warning To The Seagulls

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.

The Monochrome Experience: Giants

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.




The Monochrome Experience: Strange Things

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…

Teatre Municipal de Portimão

L’exposició “Barcelona’s Multiverse”, una de les propostes del IV Festival de les Ciutats Invisibles de Portimão
L’exposició fotogràfica “Barcelona’s Multiverse”, que es va inaugurar i presentar durant l’estiu al Palau Robert, és una de les activitats programades en el IV Festival de les Ciutats Invisibles, que se celebra al Teatre municipal de la ciutat portuguesa de Portimão, a la regió de l’Algarve. Una mostra que ens trasllada a una Barcelona imaginària, amb escenaris nous que inventa Lluís Bussé, associant i encaixant imatges de llocs i monuments molt coneguts.
La Barcelona imaginària de Bussé, doctor en Filosofia i llicenciat en Belles Arts, és pura fantasia i sorpresa, amb multiplicitat d’imatges i perspectives inventades que dibuixen una altra Barcelona possible, que pot existir en un univers paral·lel. Les sorprenents imatges, en blanc i negre, de la Sagrada Família a la platja de la Mar Bella, la Torre Agbar al Parc Güell o la Plaça de Catalunya amb surfistes ens situen en una visió nova i original.
L’exercici creatiu de Lluís Bussé es basa en la combinació de disciplines diverses, busca la barreja d’art i ciència. En aquest cas associa la fotografia i la cosmologia, la disciplina filosòfica que tracta de l’origen i la constitució de l’Univers. La proposta s’inspira en la teoria del “multiverse” del matemàtic Hugh Everett, segons la qual el nostre univers pot ser un més d’altres possibles universos. El físic Max Tegmark (MIT) reforça aquesta idea quan classifica els universos existents en nivells diferents. El “multiverse” de primer nivell, en el qual es basa el llibre, assenyala que hi ha universos paral·lels que comparteixen les mateixes lleis i constants físiques que el nostre i que hi presenten, per tant, gran similitud.
Les fotografies que es presenten a l’exposició, produïda pel Palau Robert, pertanyen al llibre de Lluís Bussé “Barcelona’s Multiverse”, publicat en anglès per Damiani Editore, amb la col·laboració de l’Ajuntament de Barcelona. El llibre també aplega textos de diversos autors sobre la teoria del “multiverse”.
El Festival d’enguany està dedicat al novel·lista Eduardo Mendoza i a la seva novel·la “La Ciudad de los prodigios”, una novel·la d’Eduardo Mendoza publicada el 1986 i que fa referència a l’evolució de la ciutat de Barcelona en el període comprès entre les exposicions universals de 1888 y 1929. Aquest esdeveniment inclou una programació amb música, teatre, circ, dansa, fotografia, cinema i literatura.
The exhibition “Barcelona’s Multiverse”, on the line-up of activities at the Festival of Invisible Cities in Portimão
The photography exhibition “Barcelona’s Multiverse”, which opened and was on display at the Palau Robert this summer, is among the line-up of activities at the 4th edition of the Festival of Invisible Cities, held in the Municipal Theatre of the Portuguese city of Portimão, in the region of the Algarve. An exhibition that transports us to an imaginary Barcelona, with new scenarios invented by Lluís Bussé, who juxtaposes and fits together images of well-known locations and monuments.
Bussé, holding a PhD in Philosophy and a degree in Fine Arts, creates an imaginary Barcelona that is the epitome of fantasy and surprise, featuring a great variety of invented images and perspectives that depict another possible Barcelona, which might exist in a parallel universe. The surprising black-and-white images of the Sagrada Família at Mar Bella beach, the Torre Agbar at Park Güell and Plaça de Catalunya with surfers afford us a new and original perspective.
Lluís Bussé’s creative exercise draws its inspiration from the “multiverse” theory developed by the mathematician Hugh Everett, according to which our universe may be one of several possible universes.

L’exposició fotográfica Barcelona’s Multiverse al Palau Robert ens mostra el món imaginari creat per Lluís Bussé que ha encaixat imatges i monuments de la ciutat en llocs diferents d’aquells a què pertanyen, i així ha creat una ciutat que ens és coneguda però que alhora ens sorprèn i ens transporta a un univers paral·lel. Us podeu imaginar la Sagrda Família enmig de la platja o surfistes a la Plaça Catalunya? Més informació a:
