Acts of Faith
by Fernando Montiel Klint
Believing in a superior being or in a religion is not necessarily the path towards illumination.
Introspection can also be a way to contemplation and individual liberation. I am talking about a moment of inspiration in which the infinite reveals itself, in other words, a mental climax. I am interested in the endless, the essential, that which transcends the earthly.
Faith replaces logic and becomes an eternal, circular act.
I propose an ironic reflection on faith in these times. Increasingly we are a selfish and solitary society, dependent on technology and with less and less time for introspection. We live in a world oversaturated with images, videos, audio, etc., leading us to a surfeit of information, shortening the time we have for free thinking.
I think in one part of society we breathe a certain air of fanaticism and there is a constantly greater need to be connected virtually all the time.
I am interested in creating stories that could come from the minds of these individuals in a state of concentration who inhabit these timeless spaces and atmospheres within a world with their own symbols. All wishing for total freedom.
I create individuals in search of a balance, of a state beyond good and evil.
In a world craving for immediacy, my aim is to make silent, timeless images within the visual sea we live in at present.
