UNIVERSE is a multimedia installation focussing on the view of the world provided by astronomy today and on the experience of contemplating, from Earth, the cycle of light in its never-ending succession of days and nights.
Following the sun’s course from dawn until the moment when the night plunges into total darkness, the piece represents the universe as a detached body that could be looked at from the outside.
The great telescopes of the Roque de los Muchachos Astrophysics Observatory, the technological eyes of the modern world, meet here with an ingenious mechanism of spinning screens which, in their constant motion, reveal some of the questions that have always piqued human curiosity and that both arts and sciences strain to understand.
The soundtrack of the installation is composed of frequencies emitted by celestial bodies – the sun, the moon, the planets... - captured and transcribed by NASA.
