The Monochrome Experience: We’ll Always Have Paris!

City of charm,
novelized by great writers,
and desired by cohorts
of unfathomable lovers.

Rainwater is deposited
in Man Ray style:
Larmes (Tears) on Car-Tops.

On the Seine you can feel
the upward glance
of the fin du 19e siècle.

Couples unleash passions
in invisible rooftops.

The inner courtyards
attend to growth
the glistening wild pots.

Someone seems
to come out
of a film-noir movie.

Nouvelle Vague…
Mirage days
(Before Love Fall),
intended to invoke
wonder at the cause*.

The Monochrome Experience: Humans And Ants

There are 7,8 billion humans on the planet today. Check out the exact number here. Ants alive on Earth at any given time exceed 10,000 trillions. We swarm with ants war and colonial ambition, but ants are in the pinnacle of social evolution*.

The Monochrome Experience: Reality

Definition of reality:
1: The quality or state of being real.
2: A real event, entity, or state of affairs his dream became a reality.

a: The totality of real things and events trying to escape from reality.
b: Something that is neither derivative nor dependent but exists necessarily.

We use reality to refer to real things or the real nature of things rather than imagined, invented, or theoretical ideas*.

The Monochrome Experience: Mirror-Image Universe

New experiments reveal hints of a world and a reality that are complete reflections of ours, with some particles capable of switching between the two. This mirrorverse may be able to solve the mystery of the universe’s missing dark matter. Nestling within the fabric of space and time alongside our own familiar universe, the implications would be astounding.

 

The Monochrome Experience: The Kiss

V-J Day in Times Square is a photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt that portrays a U.S. Navy sailor grabbing and kissing a nurse on Victory over Japan Day in New York City’s Times Square on August 14, 1945. In my picture there is no war or victory. They are a couple who celebrate their love in the middle of Barcelona’s traffic. It is also the victory of love. The photograph of the father who takes the child by the hood of the anorak seems to me another sign of love, filial love. The tall blond and the woman with the glasses, well, there they are, together. Mixing DNA has always worked well in the human species.

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: Crossed Lifes

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.

The Monochrome Experience: Acrobats

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 presents alternative city

An intriguing new photographic exhibition is presenting an alternative view of the city of Barcelona, and how it might appear in a parallel universe.

Known as “Barcelona’s Multiverse”, the selection of imagined works will be shown at the Palau Robert exhibition centre until September 11th, and will be completely free for art lovers on a visit to the city to enjoy.

The brainchild of Lluis Busse, a doctor of philosophy who is now also making his name as a groundbreaking local artist, the presentation has been inspired by Hugh Everett`s multiverse theory, and features painstakingly crafted images of, for example, the stunning Sagrada Familia church installed on Mar Bella Beach and surfers riding waves in the city-centre Plaça de Catalunya.
