CAMINOS FLUIDOS / Fluid Pathways

Caminos Fluidos / Fluid Pathways, a site specific permanent installation, is a reflection on the earth’s internal composition (inner core, outer core, mantle and crust) and how that is mirrored in our neural and cellular constitution. This public art sculpture, inspired by the topography of the Ricote Valley, contemplates the hidden, often overlooked layers within ourselves, and how those are connected to the natural environment in which we inhabit. These two sides taken together aim to understand how our personal and collective experiences develop. The final figurative form springs from the Calle de Castillo, reclaiming an abandoned, decomposing ancient route to the former Castle of Blanca as a large (25’x15’x3′), painted, biomorphic organism filled with hundreds of smaller human and cell-like shapes. Caminos Fluidos / Fluid Pathways is both an ode to Mother Earth in a time of turmoil and fosters a dialogue with nature, the surrounding community and ourselves.

Caminos Fluidos / Fluid Pathways continues decades long investigations into cellular states and conditions surfacing in works such as Dendrites and site specific installations like Thought Storm created as part of an E2C artist residency in the Florida panhandle.

With much gratitude to AADK and to the Blanca community for this incredible opportunity. This AADK residency was made possible in part by the generosity of private donors.

La instalación específica, Caminos Fluidos, es una reflexión sobre la composición interna de la tierra (núcleo interno, núcleo externo, manto y corteza) y cómo esta se asemeja a nuestra constitución neuronal y celular. El proyecto, inspirado en la topografía del Valle de Ricote, contempla las capas ocultas de nuestro interior, a menudo pasadas por alto, y cómo están conectadas con el entorno natural en el que habitamos. Esta es una instalación permanente como parte de AADK Centro Negra en Blanca, España.
