Horizons landscape


Promenade of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria // Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 2019

The horizon is shown to us as the face of the earth, an outline which identifies a place and differentiates it from another. Horizon and horizontal become close but reality shows us subtle nuances that make them diverse. We look up searching for reference points. This is the moment when the horizon serves us as a guideline, giving us coordinates that gives us our position. The experience of space is fundamentally in motion. When we walk through an unknown place, we have moved carefully as we walk, watching our step. Suddenly, we are struck by a sense of disorientation and we look for a reference, we look at the horizon and recognize the place. We measure distances, proportions and orient ourselves. The castaway longs to find land, a line on the horizon to guide him. We walk hand in hand with the horizons, believing we might have not get lost.
