The Golden Ratio (2015)

The Golden Ratio was conceived in collaboration with V15 as a site-specific installation about the role that art plays in today's society. Understanding the building as a container of light, and the windows as a de-materialization of its walls in pursuit of verticality, a microcosm of light and colour is created inside. The twelve windows contain images representing the four elements of nature in their relation to solar cycles: the 12 signs, the 12 colors of the spectrum and the 12 months of the year. Sunlight is the element that activates the images, inspiring a reflection on cycles and transformation.

Delving into an architectural analysis of the building and from a reinterpretation of its plant in a "T" shape, a fourth hidden arm is recreated by a virtual screening of its layout, showing like this a cross and rescuing this figure as a symbol of a profound universal meaning in close connection with the duality of nature and the union of opposites. From this imagined cross, placed at the intersection of its arms an interactive piece as an altar: a cube with the same ratio to the building as the distance that the moon maintains respect to Earth. It is here to highlight the importance of proportion and harmony in thought, arts and the laws that govern the universe. This interactive and visual sculpture projects from its interior different images that portray the unseen part of reality, thus materializing the fifth element as the engine of transformation of matter.

Deepening further in the idea of the flow of time, the public is invited to the experience of living the light transition from day to night. Every day at sundown, a slide show in black and white images will start on the floor of the room staging night and lunar cycles. The absence of sound stimulus allow the viewer to observe the constant changing of light and color, moving the experience to a purely contemplative dimension. This exhibition revolves around the permanent change in nature, revealing the importance of observation to understand their laws in finding answers to universal questions. A meditation on the necessary relationship between arts, science and the use of technology in human evolution.
