Container House

Hi everyone, here is an update of what i have been up to these days . I want you all to know that this is a very exiting project .
I am so invested on it not only because I deeply believe in it's concept and possible ramifications, but I also feel that it is the right moment . These days are both full of hope and uncertainty and I would like to think that we are all enough informed and sensitive of all the good and bad laid for our future. I want to ask everyone no to easily fall in to cynicism but instead share the best of you when possible in every aspect of your life.
Back to this art project , please know that I am open to any help you can offer that may move this project forward and also please spread the word .
Best wishes,

The show will be on that block.

Permanent Shadow Painting

This work consists in painting the outline of shadows created by the streetlights and fixed objects. This have been done in numerous cities around the world mostly in chalk or in washable paint, giving to this work a temporary quality to play as a contrasting point of the permanence of the shadow.

This outlines would be abstract drawings during the day but at night when the street lights turn on this objects will cast a shadow again inside this out lines showing the existence of the shadows in the sidewalk, which usually go by unnoticed, giving a different perspective and interest to the sidewalk we walk on, when walkabouts find something in their every day path that's been always there, but only as a consequence of combinations of usually practical elements such as artificial lights and parking regulations signs that by a simple white outline they become an active part of the urban landscape .

Street lights are also not always the same tint what ads as well the existence of color to this painting for example if in a corner there is a blue tinted light and further a peach tinted one, being a shadow the complementary color the light source, the white in each light will subtract the black on the shadow and the color will add to the existing color creating this way very bright orange and green shadows which highlighted by the white outline gives one more touch of surprise to the piece.

The location of all this fix objects makes the possibilities of shadows casting the same composition in two places almost impossible.
