Isle of Skye

A visit to the Highlands is not complete unless it entails some of its many islands, including the Isle of Skye, located to the north of the Inner Hebrides, one of the largest island in the Scottish territory and one of the most sought after by photography enthusiasts.

Uma visita minimamente completa às Highlands deve incluir algumas das suas muitas ilhas e a de Skye, situada a norte do arquipélago das Inner Hebrides, uma das muitas do território escocês, é das mais procuradas pelos amantes da fotografia.

This project [ +Motion Project ] will include two galleries:

Let’s start this project +Motion Projects with the gallery Experimental Videos, with the video OFF SPACE - the shadow, from a certain moment, assumes an autonomous trajectory with respect to the body that produces it.
It is at this point that the altered reality allows us to continue to establish a path fictionalized by the viewer. This video represents a first study of the work that we have been developing on the importance of the shadow in the image, whether static or dynamic.

Começamos este projecto +Motion Projects com a galeria Experimental Videos, e com o vídeo OFF SPACE - a sombra, a partir de um determinado momento, assume uma trajectória autónoma relativamente ao corpo que a produz.
É neste instante que a alteração à  realidade nos permite continuar a estabelecer um percurso ficcionado pelo espectador. Este vídeo traduz um primeiro estudo do trabalho que temos vindo a desenvolver sobre a importância da sombra na imagem, seja ela estática ou dinâmica.

Another video in this gallery Experimental Videos, is about the 19th International Biennial of Cerveira Art, which is held from 15 July to 16 September 2017, under the theme “From Pop Art to the Trans-Vanguards, Folk Art Appropriations”, the College of Arts of the University of Coimbra was represented by Theodore Ereira-Guyer (Formas de Obter Verdade, 2016), Marcia Vaitsman (Whiteness of an Exotic Place, 2006), Bruna Mibielli (Arquivo Zero, 2017) e João Fiadeiro (I am [Not] Here).

First Post

 

This personal blog was born out of a perspective of sharing the experiencing of an activity that is one of my greatest sources of pleasure: photography and video.
This space was also created with the purpose of sharing some of the academic knowledge that I received from teachers, colleagues and friends, as a student of History of Art, Aesthetics (Philosophy), Photography and Art Criticism (Art Studies).
For that reason, do not expect photography to be the sole subject of this blog. And when photography is the theme, do not be disappointed if the handling of photographic equipment is not our primary focus.
Photography is, in itself, a multifaceted form of art and knowledge whose richness is derived from many other fields of knowledge. Welcome to my blog!

A perspectiva pela qual se irá desenvolver este blogue relaciona-se com a partilha de experiências nascidas da prática de uma actividade que muito prazer me dá: a fotografia e o vídeo.
Haverá também neste espaço a partilha de alguns conhecimentos académicos que me foram e continuam a ser transmitidos por professores, colegas e amigos, no âmbito da História da Arte, da Estética (Filosofia), da Fotografia e da Crítica (Estudos Artísticos).
Por tudo isso, não esperem que apenas se fale de fotografia neste blogue. E quando dela se falar, não se desiludam se o destaque não incidir apenas sobre o manuseamento do equipamento fotográfico.
Em si, a fotografia é uma arte multifacetada de saberes que se enriquece com outros saberes
E bem vindos a este blogue!
