Modern artwork house Recinto Cerra (619 Calle Cerra, Santurce) presents a brand new proposal by sculptor Jaime Rodríguez Crespo, FOTOTAXIAS.
Fototaxia [phototaxis] is a scientific time period to explain how bugs are interested in gentle, which naturally occurs with moonlight or starlight. Nevertheless, this idea, that suggests a way of pure orientation between nature and its elements, has been altered and more and more substituted by gentle air pollution. When bugs are interested in synthetic gentle, they have a tendency to maneuver in a round vogue, performing out a horrible disaster of confusion.
For the exhibition entitled FOTOTAXIAS, artist Jaime Rodríguez Crespo has created a sculptural set up beginning with the insect identified [in Puerto Rico] as “esperanza” [hope] or Tettigoniidae of the Orthoptera household. In some superstitions, this insect is related to success, good luck, and prosperity, nonetheless, it has the dangerous fortune of being threatened in a lot of the world attributable to improvement.
“With this new mission, the artist proposes a essential reflection on gentle air pollution and environmental air pollution that, consequently, alters the ecosphere made up of the biospheric organisms and the relationships which might be established between them and the atmosphere. However, he inserts a particular concern for a neighborhood of bugs as a social amulet for understanding the connection between people and the universe. So with the importance of working into an ‘esperanza’ [hope] and all that this entails—that’s, good luck, prosperity, success—Jaime Crespo leads us to ask ourselves whether or not there’s ‘hope’ in progress or progress in ‘hope,’” explains Karlo Andrei Ibarra—artist, cultural supervisor, and co-founder of the up to date artwork house Km 0.2.
