Contemporary Art exhibition by Soliman Lopez presenting real time captures of the sky turned into digital landscapes.

About

SCAN (Spanish Contemporary Art Network) is pleased to announce the opening of CELESTE, a project by Solimán López. CELESTE continues his investigation about the relation between the digital and the analogue, furthering the idea of digital art as an archive. Nature has been a departure point and subject for artistic creation, from the Altamira cave paintings to Romanticism to Land Art. In the digital era, new perspectives and formalizations are necessary to explore the subject. CELESTE questions the use of high technology for the purpose of constructing an alternative digital image of the sky, a synthesis of real-time processed data (Light, location, temperature). The result is an image that, while recalling the original content, becomes a digital proxy of its subject. Image becomes information, human perception of reality is replaced by computational RGB code. Behind CELESTE lies the implicit question of the appropriateness of analogue methods to capture an ever more complex reality and how human technology shapes our needs.
