CARLA TRAMULLAS

Carla took this project as an opportunity to explore the white, the uncolored. We chose natural and chemical-free materials for the exploration. Colour comes only from light projections, reflexion and shadows.

Her pictures are baseed on the subtleties of moments. They capture the poetry of smooth shadows.

The aim was discovering how to use light in its maximum potential, we were searching for how light deviates our mood and our perception.

Via translucency we explore the ambiguity of matter.

We provoke unusual moments with common materials and natural light. The idea was to follow a path of research generating light effects to gain a deeper understanding. We generated a set of light experiments; some following a hypothesis but most of them were the result of unconscious play.

This intuitive way of working drew us to sparkles and gloss; I found the natural evolution of the project very honest and sincere; like when young children get attracted to shiny things. A habit carried to the adult life most researchers attribute to the innate need for water. What I find interesting is the serendipity of the project draws me to discover the subconscious human tendency to love gloss and shine.
