Remoteness of Light is a research-creation project done in co-authorship with Bárbara Echaíz Bielitz as a discussion on darkness, light, and the design of nature; presented at the Dynamics of Darkness in the North conference in Reykjavík, Iceland during February 2015. The project aimed, firstly, to reflect on how technical developments (in this case one based on darkness; namely a camera obscura) gave the humanity the possibility of managing light (from the Sun), which at the end, can be also seen as a mode to situate ourselves (humans) in this planet of ours. Secondly, and following the same path, the project also reflects on how nature could be understood as a matter of concern objected by artificiality (in this case a designed object; a simulacrum of nature) through scientific knowledge and technical development.
