ABOUT

Through a beacon equipped with the necessary material to capture the image of the sky in real time, the system extracts the colours obtained and combines them in a new digital interface that can be visited at celeste.solimanlopez.com or through different types of installation.

During the night in any of the locations, the system goes into «sleep» mode, accessing a database of images of ideal skies mixed with colour alterations.

Solimán Lopez brings together the skies of different cities around the world and displays the colorimetric variations of these unions.

Thanks to an equipped beacon, material necessary to capture the image of the sky in real time, the system extracts the colors obtained and combines them in a digital interface which can be visited on celeste.solimanlopez.com. During the night, in any of the locations, the Intelligence-Artificial system goes into “sleep” mode, accessing a database of images of ideal skies mixed with color alterations.

Celeste is installed in several contemporary arts centers such as Véles e Vents in Valencia, Spain, La Lonja Alicante, Spain, the Scan Room in London, UK as well as Mi Gallery in Paris.

The project is, in March 2020, the “icon” of the Spanish film festival in Bogota, Colombia,VIII Muestra de Cine Español (MCE) where the work now unites the skies of Madrid with several cities in Colombia. The beacons are placed at Casa America in Madrid, as well as at El Planetario in Bogotá, at the La Tertulia museum in Cali and at el Parque Explora in Medellín. The festival, due to the international Covid-19 epidemic, is postponed, but the work is still installed and exhibited on the web.
