Punts de vista

We propose a global analysis of the different meanings of the word perspective, responding to each of them through the interaction with the installation. This is initially presented as a deception, a false representation of what will later be revealed as text, which makes us uncomfortable and calls on the spectator to force himself to make sense of what he is seeing.

In an effort to capture the visitor’s attention, the most traditional interpretation of perspective is used: they represent a two-dimensional image on a three-dimensional space. By walking around the perimeter of the courtyard, a piece of writing is discovered that alludes to the concept of perspective as a distant and reflective vision of reality.
