Event Horizon


The original form of Event Horizon is a book of photographs produced in 2016, shortlisted at the Aperture Photobook Prize at Paris Photo last November. This work is a personal attempt to construct a cosmology through photographic means. Under this rather idiosyncratic curved sky, different entities roam along an endless timeline: animals, organic matter, technological artifacts and architectural objects, all seen alike by non-discriminating gaze, as if they inhabited the universe with equivalent agency in a flat ontology of sorts. Strangely though, human entities are absent, as if they had retreated inside many bunker-like houses to hide from entropy’s radiation, an emission they themselves had actually set in motion.
