Gogy and Nikolai Rose PRESENT El Vacío,
a collaborative multi-media project
that uses a variety of mediums
print design, installation design,
web design, music, and scent
to create a monument to a feeling.
“El Vacío is boundless, intoxicating, everything,
ephemeral, fleeting, blurry, warm, seductive.
It passes before you know you’re in it. Being there is
euphoric but dangerous, beautiful yet treacherous,
dark and cryptic. It is occluded by grey area
lust and living … It is the obstruction of references
to the concrete, grounded, physical world.
Everything is questionable, nothing definite.”
At the project’s core is a series of photographs
taken by Gogy on his cell phone, a tool well suited
for spontaneity. He approached Nikolai Rose to
collaborate on the design of a book for the images,
as well as the creation of an immersive installation
to embody the El Vacío experience.
The installation utilizes all aspects of the project,
photographs, audio soundtrack, and candle scent
to create an intoxicating world.
