¿Dibuja la divinidad espejos para nosotros? Dulces campos de policromía tranceleste. En los últimos años el ser humano ha logrado auscultar los confines del espacio sideral a través de la extensión tecnológica: el Hubble y otros telescopios de alguna forma han alterado nuestra conciencia, revelando los paisajes astrales que el ser humano solo había podido entrever durante sueños o visiones místicas. Profusos campos policromáticos, velos de luz diamantina, fuegos arrebolados, figuras que se dibujan vagamente con la ayuda de la pareidolia o a través de espejo esmeralda de Hermes: “como arriba, es abajo”. Numerosas culturas, entre ellas algunas de las más brillantes —como la maya, la griega y la india— han tejido historias fundacionales, arquetipos y mitologías en las que los dioses —y los hombres que de alguna manera alcanzan la divinidad, roban el fuego— se imprimen en el cosmos, se convierten en las estrellas, constelaciones y galaxias: como si eleveran su espíritu a la luz.

For this Thursday we’ve made a series that captures a transitioning of day into night within a single photograph. In fact, this is going to be about a fine art project Stephen Wilkes has produced about New York in the beautiful patches of day and night . “Day to Night embodies a combination of my favorite things to photograph; people on the street melded with epic cityscapes, and the fleeting moments throughout the day and night,” noted the author. Well, we should admit that these exceptionally well done photographs add a surreal dimension to various iconic New York places. To split the landscapes from AM to PM and create such a surrealist effect, Stephen kept his camera at a fixed angle for up to 15 hours, then weaved and blended the shots into one frame.
