Three perspectives of the same sculpture articulated according to an internal logic: a matrix of equilateral triangles –with 60º angles– underlining each shape. The hinges on the images are doubled in different angles and directions creating dissimilar images of the same matrix. In this way, each sculpture creates the illusion of 5 different sculptures.
Each figure, transformed by the folds that compose it, gives shape to new solids that are symmetrical and complementary to each other, which could be related to the very concept of antimatter. The work demonstrates the plastic thinking of the pre-Columbian sculptors and shows the emphasis on the symmetrical coherence of the figures.
The exercise delves into an ontology of forms and fixes on the cyclical transit between the third and second dimension. In the spatial translation between these two dimensions all other interdimensional passages are suggested, among which would be the astral journey of the shaman to other dimensions of consciousness.
