Reflexions is an experimental project that is the result of many months of work, collaborations and research into light.
Reflexions wasn’t a project: it was more like a path to follow. There was an overriding desire to work with light in a different way, within a separate paradigm. We believe that it was this desire that ultimately gave rise to the central concept of the project: to cease working with light as a mere source and instead to appreciate it as it fades, in its initial spark and the transformation brought about by its reflexion. The feeling that somehow it was just out of reach, that it was alive, was so captivating it drove us to continue experimenting until we achieved the perfect result.
One of the other premises of the project was collaborating with other artists, incorporating other ideas. We had the privilege of working with Lolo & Sosaku, sharing in their poetry but also in their genius and we have learnt so much about their world. They are responsible for the sound design installation that enhances the whole experience.
We have been able to work in an inspiring space - thanks to the generosity of SIMON – which has been instrumental in the project.
Finally, the studio team, lead this time by Max Milà, was another great asset: their work and all that they brought to the project caused illusions to become light, a great light.
I hope that you can enjoy your experience in this inspiring place of reflexions, and above all, peace.
