“Affective perspective” opens up the perspective of subjective perception of our gaze and relationship with others. It questions the relativity of things and their relation in view of perspectives. The mirrored walls of the interior create the infinity of space, where in the extremities, facing each other are placed two portals that emit light. The spectator participates in this puzzle of perceptions, because facing the big door one is attracted by the light and the possible promise of what could be revealed behind once crossed. At the beginning all the attention is drawn to this portal, but if we look in front there is a portal identical to the first but ten times smaller. The play of perspective reveals to us the sight of a multitude of big gates that derive from the small one, in opposition to the first vision, where we can only speculate on what may be behind. Just as in life, the human being is attracted by the grandeur of the immediate, neglecting the possibilities behind prospects.
