Singularity

Singularity, from a physical point of view, is defined as the place of origin, where the density of matter and the curvature of space are infinite. Mathematically speaking, these points that do not belong to the space-time describe the origin of the universe.

We began to question the reason for our existence as unique individuals brought together by different factors in space-time, coinciding at a certain point, finding parallels between us.

 We try to define that point in space-time as the “I” of human existence. The “I” as nearly perfect circular volume (duplication of existence), floating in an infinite space (singularity), but not unknown to our memories (footprints on the weave).

From the archetype of the spherical, round, circular, defined by Jung to mark the pregnant form studied in the psychology of perception, circular volume leads us to the basic ideas of human existence.

“… Das Dasein ist rund, the existence is round, because to say that it seems round is to keep a doubling of existence and appearance, when what we mean is the existence in all its roundness.” Gaston Bachelard (1958, p.89) The Poetics of Space.

 In this series of photographs, an analog method is used to build the images. Although the photography is digital there is no retouching, the scene captured is “in situ” sculpture using photography as the recording medium.

 We work with the circle and the colour white. Circle, from the Latin Circulus, means round. The form that has no end, always continuous, symbolizes the eternal, absolute. It is the symbol of the Universe.

 And the white color represents purity, being within the color range, pure color. White cleans and clears the emotions, thoughts and spirit. In heraldry, white represents faith and perfection. White is light, innocence, goodness and virginity.”
