Final work / by jorge cruz

"The empty spaces in the pictures, determined by the format, open the doors to individual perception. Disorientation caused by these “blank spots” becomes lodged in the memory, increasing the processor’s performance. This performance is boosted further by the black and white look of the landscapes re-presented in this work. 

Announcing the landscape’s presence. Heightening perception. A distinctive feature of this technique is that the wider picture is not apparent until seen from a distance. The details, the pixels, painstakingly assembled, reveal their full meaning only when they lose their identity, seen from afar. "
