My experience in Destination Unknown’s Residency was very enriching. Although I was working in a completely unknown environment to me, there was an extraordinary connexion with the space.

When facing a space where experiences and materials were accumulated over the years, the relation with it is driven by a unique reading.

The execution of Rearrangement of material, was born from an enormous empathy with the space and its existent materials, in which the sculpture developed itself in vertical / horizontal / diagonal directions, where by a Zero or Whole not making part of it, it found its own process of progress / spacial build.

Therefore, when I first started to outline the sculpture, I realized that the materials were expanding and contracting the space, since the formation / materialization / destruction.

On the path tread by the sculpture, negative spaces were arising, enlightened sometimes in the darkness
