Ay_Nada_Mar \ Francisco del Corral del Campo + Carmen Barrós Velázquez

• September 11, 2011

Aynada mar is the name of a water channel and a spring built by the Arabs during the XIth century in Alfacar, a place close to Granada, in order to create Granada’s water supply.

This magical place was the inspiration for creating a new space piece, a kind of spring for mysterious corners where water, stone and light, seemed to be one.

Its sound is a silent rumour and the reflection is a continuous vibration. From time to time a water drop overflows as it was a tear. The humid stone seems crying.

Materials used are just water, stone and light.

We would like to sum up its meaning as follows:

The stone, being liquid, lives
ay!, swims
It reflects the world and cries with emotion
Is liquid look, eye which sings, sea.

La piedra, haciéndose líquida, vive,
¡ay!, nada
Refleja el mundo y, de alegría, llora
Es mirada líquida, ojo que canta, mar
