Aloisio Congrejo's install The Colors of Jazz, at La Baroque's Colore! Gallery till next Tuesday.
A blood red skybox encircles spiky white prims, all akimbo, like exotic plants in an alarming conservatory. Aloisio built this over a couple of weeks, late at night, with his beloved Miles Davis playing in the background. The album, and the song had to be Kind of Blue and, initially the build was coming out kind of blue, too.
Aloisio Congrejo: This technique is not a new one for me. I use prims with a blank white texture and light them. That way as you walk among them you get different lighting effects. The first idea, to use only blue lights, gradually changed, and I introduced red lighting effects, so that when the beams cross each other you get patches of purple in the middle.
Colors of Jazz is open at Colore! until the 22nd of May.
