Cielo rojo y verde y azul

The light structure conforms to a system that replicates, through an algorithm, the code from the «BITMAP POEMARIUM» series of works. In each composition, every sequence of colours represents a number from 0 to 255, simultaneously representing a character from a poem. The composition of three colours turns every 17 seconds.

Río del Cielo

Hatun Mayu (Río del Cielo) 2022 ASCII image, sublimation print on Deko Texx. 240 x 320 cm. (detail)

Rio del Cielo (River of the Sky) is the name given to the Milky Way in the Atacama culture, according to the belief that this is a “river” bringing the dead souls to the other world.
Characters used to form this image are determined by the code of the colour profilings of the digital image itself. The colour profile of a digital image determines the colours to use to make “visible” a picture on the surface of a screen. This work inverses this logic, bringing the colour profile code to the surface of the textile on which the image is printed.

Two photographs of the same object are turned into two different realities: RGB and CMYK. These two colour spaces symbolise two parallel “realities” in my work: light and a material conception of the universe.
