Poem of water
Plaza de San Bartolomé
BoaMistura’s work Mírate a través de este poema de agua – installed for four days during the “Concéntrico”, the Architecture and Design Festival of Logroño – is about a forest of triangular base prisms on a grid of hexagons which depending on where you place, it opens to the city giving new views or darkens generating a screen.
Starting with the verse of the Poem 6 by Enrique Cabezón, poet from La Rioja in Spain (Logroño, 1976) which says: “look at yourself through this poem of water.” Decomposed in four parts, one can read only from certain points when walking the installation perimetrically.
Every part of the verse mixes with the others generating different colored and geometrical compositions. Its a piece conceived to push yourself to get in and discover, losing many times the perception of the place where you are in.
