flying flies

visual art

Flying flies specifically means floaters, entoptic phenomenon due to an imperfect human eye’s vitreous humor transparency. It is that effect of dark spots seen when, for example, a very bright light is starred; this is the precise condition that I want to create in the viewer. So it goes against the meaning of light known as what allows you to see, to recognise shapes, the depth of reality. Also Aristotle tried to set the concept of light, which despite its apparent immateriality is founder of the universe corporeality; from here develops the idea of my installation, where iron, glass and the electrical cables want to trap the light to give it a kind of corporeality.
