Stars on the Moon
Astrowaker | Stars on the Μoon is an allegory about the Constellation of Astrowalker, a story of dislocation and reappearance.
Stars self-exiled from their birth place, their nebula, to become one with the rest of the sky stars. While they were walking around, they discovered a path at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods, at the foot of the mountain Saos. In order to seem like they elevate, they set in position of a bird, with sideways tilt on the Moon and direction the mountaintop, waiting for sun to set and earth to turn into sky.
Astrowalker’s Constellation is a bird-man with dimensions 600x450m. It is shaped by 11 solar lights in the landscape and it appears after the sun set

Dark self refers to an imaginary house, a blurred ghost. Consists of a video projection and painting on transparent materials.
The video projection with a minimum of dislocation is placed at an angle that manufactures the facade of a house with an archetypal roof.
This small shift turns the projection screen into a home from light. The morphological simulations of the opening -door and window- have been delineated by tarnishing the transparent surfaces with mournful meditation painting, in a constantly moving and shifting frame.
