THE SOLACE OF OPEN SPACES
"The solace of open spaces" is the title of a visual research project that is based on the relationship between humans and open spaces. Why does the sight of open landscapes and views offer us relief or a comfortable feeling? Which elements contribute to the tranquility and the insights that this broad spectacle can offer? How, why and when does a visual perspective become a state of mind?
Part of the objective of the research is to explore and study different places and views. How does open space influence daily life and public space? Where does the hypnotic aspect of a view arise? After confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these questions gain relevance thanks to the increased awareness of our vital space, the space we occupy and the space we need for contemplation.
