Memoria Luz

Martin Mur

Memoria Luz experiments with the idea of the passage of historical time using three spaces that symbolize three moments of emancipation in human technology: cave paintings, aerodynamics and the digital age.

The piece stages the encounter between a hand and a beam of light and acts as a tribute to our analogical interpretation of the world, specifically in the way we experience the space around us, through our physical body and our subjective perception of time.

The presence of the hand tries to convey the paradoxical idea of our desire to retain that which is ephemeral and unattainable. Thus, the analog film material acts as the physical and palpable material on which the encounter is captured and recorded.
