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.

We are a multidisciplinary team with roots in graffiti art. Born in late 2001, Madrid, Spain. We develop our work mainly in the public space. We have carried out projects in South Africa, USA, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Georgia, Chile, Algeria, Norway, Kenya, China, Serbia or Panamá. We were 15 years old when we first met, while painting the walls of our neighborhood. We became friends since then.

Our headquarter is in Madrid, but we spend the day from here to there, living among paint buckets, computers and ping-pong matches. We love what we do. We understand our work, as a tool to transform the street and to create bonds between people. We feel a responsibility with the city and time we are living in.
