Light Installations Reveal Hidden Dimensions

Javier Riera is a Spanish artist known for his projected light and geometry interventions on landscapes. He designs and photographs light projections that hit directly sceneries. The geometric shapes are used to reveal what the artist considered as hidden dimensions or energies embedded in the natural world.

“[I am interested in] those moments in which the outside (the landscape) begins to be perceived as something very intimate, while our internal world begins to be perceived with some distance,” Riera told Colossal. “It is almost as if it becomes external to us, and for that reason it is clarified.”

Researching about the landscape’s history is an important aspect of his process which allows him to create an original pattern or design for the projection. The visual feature of a location is also significant to allow the viewers to appreciate more about the various layers that compose the natural environment.
