In the image the topography of three rivers were transformed in the shape of a lightning bolt, striking over the Havana horizon.
The Echo Morphology series includes a sequence of works that show
similarities and concurrences in landscape. Like the riverbed and the arteries
in a human body that can be morphologically analogous to lightnings or cracks, landscape, in its multiple manifestations, also binds its components to give an
order of fluency to its parts. The pieces work symbolically as new stories of
linkages in a territory that, repeated in several natural units of the
universe, is transformed, flowing from one state to another and returning back
to their initial state. Although the artist begins with and uses scientific
facts or axioms, when the images moves to the symbolic field, they are
reinterpreted, manipulated or overlap one another. Eco is the construction of a
space that makes visible the components of that recurring landscape in other
elements of the world.
The human body haves 200km of arteries and veins all of them have been or will be roots.
The 80% of the roots of around 3 trillion of trees have fallen once in the form of lighting. 1 million 800 thousand of their branches are similar to the 30% of the rivers.
There are 10 871 known rivers in Earth, 70% of them where once lightings.
Of the 100 Lightings that strike every second, 90 are arteries or veins.
