The Spanish artist Elbi Elem, former known as Labuenaylamala, shown us his latest work called “Silence”.
This was project that the artist had in mind for a long time and is a mix of sculpture and digital projection.
The Sculpture is made of metal, wood, pvc, methacrylate and carbon fiber, and has a size of 320x160x100cm.
Here is the description of the project by the artist him self:
“A final piece that, when viewed, is thought to be made using digital techniques, using programming codes or software, but the method is actually simpler and makes the viewer think how then. The result comes from record a video to the sculpture rotating in front of a white background, and then projecting it back onto itself, generating this triple image effect of shadows and projections with an attractive moiré of superposition of layers, creating a hypnotizing sensation, An infinite abstract landscape.”
“On the other hand I was very interested in working with it in an abandoned space, to place the piece in an uninhabited, melancholy, dark, dirty and inhospitable environment, full of emptiness, of silence. Filled with memories, extinguished today by the passing of time, by that silence, which breaks for a moment with this projection of light, on a floating piece, that moves and creates new forms in the nothing, in the everything, in all what a day was that place.”
Here are some photos of the piece:

Amazing work Elbi Elem!
