The End of the Index Logic-

The project entitled The End of the Index Logic ( I See the Darkness), came out on a warm summer night where I slept outdoor for stargazing. The view was magical. Timeless. I decided to take some photos and a video with my phone. The result was disappointing at first glance, the camera had not been able to photograph the stars, and the darkness was only noise. 

However, the inability of the technology to reproduce that moment, made me aware of the importance of my personal experience. What my eyes were seeing became an irreproducible show and so error, defect, and failure became a momentary success.

​Thus, I created an installation in which photography approaches the pictorial image, separated from references and a representational purpose. Text is shown on an LED light cartel, bringing us a speech overcoming fear of failure, of the invisible, of the undepictable. At the end, the lack of image becomes an invitation to see something in the dark.
