Valeria Divinorum's Locus Amoenus: Into the 4th Dimension

In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato refers to human perception through cinematic projections of animated shadows onto a wall. Valeria Divinorum's work updates this idea using glass, a material that does not retain the light that passes through it; rather, it drags its colors and shapes. This is how we witness a changing spectacle such as a sunset, an eclipse or the formation of a rainbow. “A major theme in my work is the human connection with nature and the organic expressions that emerge from that relationship”, according to Divinorum.

There is a theatricality of forms. Much like the spectators in Plato’s Myth of the Cave, we do not look at the object itself, we see what it projects. Divinorum’s work challenges us to look beyond the projection, to widen our gaze. Locus Amoenus is a reference to the New Non-Euclidean geometries, which opened the doors of perception of hyperspace.
