POST – OCÉANO / Abstract
In December 2018, Valeria Real took a series of photographs of experiments that show the formation of deep and intermediate water in the ocean. The experiments were developed in a laboratory at the University of Miami with the Argentinian oceanographer Josefina Olascoaga.
The photos register the geometric formations that are naturally created by the variation of temperatures and densities in a small, simulated scale of the ocean (with its glaciers, warm waters, and confrontations between fresh and saltwater) that accounts for the conditions and changes it sustains. In turn, the created images propose a symbolic field, so rich with elements that it can be analyzed formally as well as conceptually.
Thus was born a project that proposes to cover the topic of Climate Change in various dimensions, focusing on water as a point of convergence for the observations as well as a way to question the politics, aesthetics and philosophies behind its image.
Valeria Real is a young and audiovisual artist from Patagonia, Argentina, who combines her passion for photography and innovation, generating spaces where her concept expands and comes alive, giving an opportunity for people to interact with her work beyond the visual.
She puts a spotlight on the emotion and sensation transmitted by the captured images, mixing her interpretation with those who experience her photographic and artistic works.
