Santi Delgado 2020

It is a complex challenge to create a work of art from a subject whose beauty is immeasurable and impossible to overcome. The challenge is aggravated if the nature of the subject of the piece is antithetical to the nature of the medium that tries to abstract its essence. At this point into the millennium, videoart production relies heavily on computational tricks, on digital effects, on the deformation of reality through technical resources that return synthetic objects that work well in our sophisticated and denaturalized societies. So, it is perfectly understandable the paralyzing shock in the mind of the artist when confronting the sublime beauty of the Caucasus´ peaks. But in the end everything was achieved: you could not recreate a typical romantic landscape; you could not make a documentary descriptive piece. Only task was to apprehend the impression in the mind of a digital being. The result is deCaucasus: How to manipulate the color if the color was already perfect? How to modify the times if time was static and eternal? How to escape from the perfect photograph, from the perfect framing, from absolute beauty? How to work the audio if the silence of the place was a balm?
