Fundación Telefónica Peru, through its art and technology programme Espacio Fundación Telefónica, presents ‘Mystic of the Optic’, installations by Andrea d’Amario, a famous French artist who explores her vision of the universe as a complex hologram. This work stems from questioning the uncertain way we view the world, visually interpreting reality as decoded information provided by our senses using light as the main component.
The exhibition features mechanical installations that, through lamps and prisms, refract light, deconstructing the different colours, shapes and optical elements that influence the viewers’ perception and the surrounding space.
