Spanish artist Nacho Ruiz’s art tends to seek out public participation and interaction.
Spanish artist Nacho Ruiz’s Meeting Point, a fibre optic light installation, was one of the unsung highlights at the Urbanscapes 2013 festival in Serdang, Selangor last month. Moving on from his Malaysian debut installation, Ruiz has now been commissioned for a new light installation at Publika, Solaris Dutamas in Kuala Lumpur.
The new piece entitled Infinity resides inside the Publika Boulevard. It will be on display
till Feb 14.
Made from fibre optic materials, optic luminaire machine, plastic mirrors and wood panels, Infinity is a black box in the centre of Publika.
The public can access the interior of the piece, designed as a space of mirrors and fibre optics that automatically becomes part of the installation.
“Perhaps our children and certainly our grandchildren will be able to access a state of infinite or eternal life,’’ said Ruiz about this new work.
“This concept is already latent in our lives as our digital footprint will remain an eternal way of social networking,’’ he added.
Visitors are encouraged to pose with the artworks and take digital photos of themselves to complete the intention of the piece.
For Infinity at Publika, Ruiz collaborated with Malaysian artist Adeputra Masri while Ferran Benavent and Maria Carbonell from Ruiz’s hometown of Valencia, also helped out.
