There isn’t any work of art that exists without the gaze of a visitor.
This fact literally is key point of the artistic installation #nuestrocerebroestailuminado (English: our mind is enlightened), which is situated in a fully dark space. The circular text on the wall*, is written in phosphorescent paint and only becomes visible when lit by a visitor’s mobile phone, who charges it with this action for a few minutes. The individual audience members convert into performers, who form an essential part of the artwork itself. Without this participation the artwork doesn’t have any sense.
Your eyes need several hours to fully adapt to a low light condition, therefore it is recommended to remain at least several minutes inside the space, to be able to see the writing on the wall. If you are pressed for time, you can enhance the luminosity of the letters by using your mobile phone as a lantern.

COMO LO HARÁN OTROS (LIKE OTHERS WILL DO)
