Olorun is a series of photograms on gelatin silver paper . The series is an imaginative cosmology, the study of the origin and development of the universe, the earth and the humanity. Both religion and science attempt to prove, claim and explain the phenomenon of life. In the Yoruba culture from West Africa, Olorun is representative force that crated all. Thorough its title, the series of photograms reclaim cosmology to one of its most ancient roots, the Yoruba culture.
The images transcend the inherent of photography and matter itself. The photogram serves here as the medium through which I manipulated light in order to shape the forms of a dance of energies that are at the central point of Life's creation and its ever changing appearance. Beyond the paradoxes of isolation and attraction, creation and dissolution, movement and stillness, solitude, encounter and separation, there is Oloru. From individual particles to complex structures, Life swings between unity to infinity.
We are one and we are all. Emotions surround and occupy spaces. Elements relate to each other and to themselves in various forms, differentiated beauties and voids of information. Nature takes care of voids, and we survive by a common force, Olorun.
