About_
The Epic of Creation is a 3 part site-specific immersive experience that tells the story of the end of matriarchy (and how the patriarchy took over). Through research on ancient myths and neglected history, these pieces depict cosmological events to question what we understand as truth.
Along with the geometric installations built around the forest, a map and an audio guide were created, so the viewer could locate these pieces while listening to the ideas that motivated the work.

About_
The Earth Experiment combines ancient knowledge with conspiracy theories. I’m looking into Maya, Egyptian and Sumerian cultures, Greek mythology and internet whistleblowers who claim to have worked at CERN and have hidden information on NASA’s secret space programs. I’m also referring to Plato’s allegory of the cave when including the observer’s shadows in the work.

There are many layers of information attached to this piece. I use visually simple symbols (sacred geometry) to tell a story, but they are charged with meaning, and if you see the work in the flesh, if you are present, you FEEL it (I like to compare it to a dream, in which you can’t always verbalize your experiences, but you often remember their feeling).

Overall, I can say that The Earth Experiment places the viewer inside a matrix (or a bubble), that depicts a dome of invisible energy and represents the reality in which we are stuck in. We perceive nothing outward this one dimension. Outside of this bubble (and out of our reach) there are floating hieroglyphics that make up a totem (or an obelisk), that is a symbol of power and points to the ones in charge, the ones that control the rest of the world. Because whoever controls the information that comes to us, well, controls us.
