66 lapis

66 lapis is a project in which through my own superstitious tendencies around the use of the multiples of the number eleven and the scales of the color blue, and based on the idea of ​​the amulet as a protective object, or the pseudo-scientific powers attributed to minerals, I investigate how superstitious beliefs infiltrate our everyday cognitive processes and how doubts arise when we perceive our environment. Watching how our perception is filtered, distorted or amplified by these belief systems and the impact of that fact in the formation of our consciousness.

Through a study of the chromatic range of the Lapislazuli stone, one of the first minerals used as a blue pigment, and taking into account the symbolic and totemic qualities of minerals, I form sculptural and visual compositions created from light and matter and organized into quantities and multiple parameters of the number eleven.
