Arte Santander ’14 Project – Spatial Distribution

Archaeology of a Landscape

Spatial Distribution:

  • Fragmentation = Encapsulation in the same work of different moments, different states, different lights, different sensations
  • Point of view = Low, to highlight the monumentality; high, to highlight magnificence; middle, natural
  • Stratification = Differentiation through planes at different level, the states and moments of landscape (The same way as the Archaeology keeps uncovering different strata of a field looking for different epochs, using the stratification to delimit the different moments, sensations, suggestions, impressions, realities, memories.
  • Cinematographical terms (foreground, background, long-shot, to define the present, the past and the future)
  • Diagonals
  • Perspective
  • Vertical strips
  • Horizontal extensions

Technical Resources:

  • Digital impression
  • Acrylic paint in its different states of pastiness or dilution
  • Tempera
  • Lacquers or transparent colours
  • Chinese ink
  • Materials of the landscape (leaves, sticks…)
  • Supports: Hanne mule paper, paper for print making, onion paper, acetates and other planar surfaces.

Digital Resources:

  • Transparencies = superposition of reality over memories
  • Focus and Out of focus = Perception of temporary neatness and subjective of the term, through more or less out of focus.
  • Complementary:
  1. Real light – investment of light (positive and negative, like change of condition, of stratum, of moment)
  2. Natural colour – Complementary colours (Utilising the opposite or complementary vision of colour to emphasize the temporary difference)
