WiredScapes is a series of photographs of landscapes with natural elements all connected with wire over light. The wire plays the role of different horizons, which separates sky and sea/land, becoming part and connecting the natural elements: rocks, plants, salt.
On WiredScapes, the light is the main environment, playing as air, water and fire, where salt comes as earth. Metal connects and plays with them all and in several cultures is considered one of the natural elements among with fire, water, earth and air.
Transparencies and opacity connected and interfering with each other, the weights of the elements on a not natural context but co-existing and belonging to the light itself. On WiredScapes, light is light. But is also a wired light. Light weight on cosmic light. You can even eclipse yourself, playing your own mind tricks being day or night being any role you want to play.
The WiredScapes came out as a need of silence of the mind in an urban landscape where everything tends to be noisy, using the electric light. Wire connects but is also a conductor of energy. And of energies. Natural ones.”
