ORNITOGRAFÍAS

Ornithographies is informed by a need to capture those moments that go unnoticed, as well as by an interest in questioning the boundaries of human perception.
My intention is to portray in a single instant the shapes that birds create when they are in flight, rendering the invisible visible. Nevertheless, Ornitografías distances itself from a purely scientific study of the movement provided by Chronophotography, a genre that was invented in the 19 th century by the photographers Eadweard Muybridge and Étienne Jules Marey. It involves a balance between art and science, and it constitutes a project of both nature education and an exercise of visual poetry.
