Discovering The Horse Rider & The Eagle

Video documentation of The Horse Rider and The Eagle, an immersive art installation created by Sabrina Barrios, exhibited in Brussels, Belgium (March 2016).

Music by Matt Herron

///

The Horse Rider and the Eagle is the second chapter of a larger multimedia site-specific installation that depicts a hidden dimension in space, lead by matriarchy.

The viewer is invited to participate in the work of art and to experience each piece with their bodies, while gathering clues to understand the narrative in its totality.

In January and February Sabrina Barrios participated on an art residency in Malaga, Spain, sponsored by Banco Santander Foundation. The paintings above were produced during this time and exhibited at Just MAD 7, contemporary art fair in Madrid.

This series of paintings depicts gateways into hidden dimensions.
According to quantum physicists and mathematicians, we are just one universe among parallel worlds, and even though we can only perceive 3 spatial dimensions (height, width, length) and 1 that concerns spacetime, there are other 7 out there–resulting on a total of 11 dimensions.
The research behind this work encompasses ideas that question reality and are translated into paintings that portray the feeling of each hidden dimension, and how a high speed built in portal would interfere in their fabric.

On view in Governors Island, NY (where the 7th Dimension is located), until August 2nd.

Zero | the complete experience

What if the choices you didn’t make in this reality happened somewhere else? And what if you could physically navigate a moment of decision?

This video documents the experience and reveals the ideas behind Zero, an immersive 3 part installation developed in April and May of 2015, during Laboratory residency (Spokane, WA).

Zero–Part 3: Afterlife

Zero is a 3 part site-specific immersive experience meant to be explored by a single person at a time.
It represents the stages of the soul, spirit and body from before birth to afterlife. The number 0 symbolizes a full circle and thus denotes infinity, completeness and holiness.

Part 3 of this immersive installation can be translated as an out of body experience. As the viewer moves towards that room, they see a projection of themselves walking within the structure they were just in (Part 2: vimeo.com/128297027).

Zero–Part 2: Life

Zero is a 3 part site-specific immersive experience meant to be explored by a single person at a time.
It represents the stages of the soul, spirit and body from before birth to afterlife. The number 0 symbolizes a full circle and thus denotes infinity, completeness and holiness. While engaging in the experience the audience puts on earplugs, so they can hear their own breathing and turn the attention within.

This work was developed during a 2 month art residency (Laboratory Residency) in Spokane, WA.

Part 2 (seen in the video) is a bodily exploration, where the viewer is invited to engage with the life-sized work by walking within it while making their own decisions–such as going left, right or turning back. Regarded as a metaphor for one’s life trajectory, each segment of the structure is illuminated as people walk.
The structure as a whole is shaped as waves and brings about ideas of quantum mechanics, that investigates the microscopic world. In that realm, the laws indicate that particles are spread through space like waves, without any specific location, until they are measured. Studies on that field also suggest that the choices one hasn’t made in this reality happened in a parallel one. In other words, it is possible that you have chosen everything you haven’t experienced in this life.
