Entry DescriptionThe Origami Project will be seen as it was imagined six millennia ago.
If we take a square piece of paper, and mark a dot in both of the opposite corners; one of them being today, and the other, 6,000 years ago and we then trace a line connecting them, representing the time passed between them; when folding the paper square down the middle, the opposite ends touch. This is what we will achieve with Origami; we will connect both ends, present and past, representing our ancestors' vision by using creativity and technology, in one universal project.
The project intends to show what is imaginary, by using light as the means; while history and science will be the foundation. Thus, the illuminated elements placed in deliberate locations will allow us a conceptual understanding that has yet to be achieved; as well as the vision of an illuminated structure of a unique architectural work in the world of artistic creations.
There will be two spatial representations: 1. The anomalous axis that goes from Menga Dolmen to La Peña de los Enamorados crag passing over El Romeral tholos tomb; 2. The anomalous axis from El Romeral tholos tomb to El Torcal; 3. The celestial axis from Viera Dolmen
