work articulated the possibility of creating a black mark in a white,
rectangular, space as the result of a cosmic event. The mark was to be
created by a pile of gunpowder triggered when a solar explosion was
detected by a technological apparatus. The theatrical installation was
conceived as an interruption in the flux of everyday time by the sudden juxtaposition of cosmic time.
Installed for one week in the corridor outside the studios from the
Master in Fine and Visual Arts from the National University in Bogotá.
During the exhibition no solar explosion took place.
Developed with the help of engineer Iván Lopez.
