We privilege to the fullest the spatial, aesthetic and comfort qualities of the object to be created. INSIDE/SPACE & OUTSIDE/SHAPE.
We work intensively with LIGHT (or absence thereof), as a matter to shape/reveal the spaces we create… We like to explore how Light travels in the Void and in the Form, how it manifests and absorbs/is absorbed.
We pay special attention to the manifestation of matter and how it occurs through the exposure of Matter caused by Light… that is, the Shadow. For us, the shadow is part of and plastically complements any piece of matter, and matter, which is “alive”, naturally kinetic and in constant movement, is a fundamental element that enriches the piece of work, unexpectedly transforming itself into millions of new spots that accompany the Form… every minute of the day.
The fourth dimension of Life
“Last but not least…” TIME… manifested through the transposition of the body in space… of liveability, of Movement.
Time is the fourth dimension that gives sense to the other three… but after all, since it is ephemerous and unmeasurable… although we constantly work with it, we (sometime) believe that… maybe it does not exist.
“Commandments” / Thoughts based on the Author’s 25 years of experience from his comprehensive practice in parallel between Architecture and Sculpture. This is intended to be a living, dynamic and flexible philosophy, like the works to be proposed.
“Rules” in force on Planet (h)eART(h), where ApART(e)studio is based, and, such as the World (where our Body lives) and our Body (the major home of our Soul)… should be constantly amended and updated… because more than answers, we wake up every day looking for new questions… and when eventually the answer arises, the Disquiet ceases to exist, it becomes part of the past…
Sometimes we look back, but only to learn from it and take the necessary “Sustainable Energies…
Sun, Wind… Water… are possible ecological and sustainable energy sources, as an option to fossil fuels… but unfortunately they are not available everywhere in the world, at all times, or accessible for all… therefore, it is hard for us to believe that staking everything in power generation systems that are only available “every now and then, only in some places”…
We know that… on the contrary, Gravity is ubiquitous in every corner of the world… 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, so… why not invest some of our time and creative energy into developing possible ways to use this force on the objects we create, for instance to generate… energy… Light…”
