Death of an Image, 2006
"When things become hot or very cold they change.
Sometimes it happens in such a radical way that it is no longer possible to recognize them. They change so much that, by just looking, there is nothing that would enable us to recognize their original molecular structure. At the same time, beyond 780 nm, the threshold of the visible spectrum, the human eye is plunged into darkness, a cosmic darkness in which the electromagnetic waves transmitted by objects are imperceptible.
Death of an Image is an attempt to cross a boundary, the desperate need to cancel something out in order to rebuild it.
Objects, placed within the area of the shot according to precise perspectival hierarchies, generate their own absence, exposing hiatuses in the landscape, cloaking it, transforming the subjects. They are physical subtractions repeated in space, calibrated violence that triggers a process of the image’s resurrection. They are precarious interventions, light superstructures that interfere, doubling the visual epicentre.”
