Connecting Universes

By Bimbi Larraburu | August 15, 2020

It’s July 2020. The world is in lockdown. Everything has changed. There is nowhere to escape, except maybe in science fiction, which is where I found a way to connect our present experience to other realities.

In “The Wormhole Project” I explore the idea of connecting two universes within myself. One universe is more colorful and expressionist, the other, more architectural and monochromatic. The project is a window into my own world. It is a place where I develop a personal artistic vocabulary to create a new form of self-expression.

I developed “The Wormhole Project” as a participant in the World of Co. Virtual Residency during the pandemic. Twelve artists from different countries worked in our own studios or improvised studios at home. The experience gave me a unique vision about artistic practice and the way the environment is always present in the work.
