Representing the heavens

Wall text

Pictorial representation has been traditionally associated to the world of the sacred. Art history shows numerous representations of skies, from landscapes to heights, as a symbolic space of spiritual elevation. As in many other works, this project aims to highlight the idea that one is permanently surrounded by sky, which is a space where one can access without having to die. The inclusion of optical devices that momentarily set images of the sky on several screens expands the possibilities of the audience to recognize their permanent presence in heaven.
