Marta Isamel Ramirez Silva | Symbiosis

I love glass and nature. And I also love coexistence and seeing how the difference must achieve union instead of separation.

In this project I want to unite various types of living nature (plants) with inert nature (glass plants), both of them inside a glass heart house, for some time. I can't wait to see how coexistence begins to occur between different kinds of species. How each one recognizes the similarities before than opposites, and how to learn to accept them instead of refusing them. This is the main premise of coexistence. The location will be temporarily changed to observe how, in addition to what happens inside the heart, external conditions also influence the behavior of the cohabitants. Each step will be documented by me through photos and short videos.

With using lampworking technique, I want to allow the material to run freely, without imposing anything on it.
I only aspire to establish a dialogue with the material to be able to discover its natural flow. I wish to let it move and transform spontaneously.  I hope to be an instrument, a facilitator for the glass “to be”.
In my work I propose recreating the static moments of the moving water, allowing them to achieve their own nature.
I also want to represent moods and feelings through all my work, by taking different elements from nature as inspiration.
