The Dome_ The Cave by Solkide Auer

Table of Contents

The Cave” is the latest artistic installation created by Solkide Auer and hosted by LEA19.

It represents an explosion of shapes, lights, colors, and movement. A cohesion of abstract and geometric elements that reflect the author’s “inner face.”
Abstract art prefers shapes and colors to the representation of Reality.
So “Abstractionism” is the art movement that doesn’t represent Reality.
Abstractionism, in turn, knows different currents. One of these is geometric abstractionism; Solkide Auer’s installation is a brilliant externalization.
The installation “The Cave” consists of several “points of arrival“: and each of them corresponds to a specific artistic environment. They are set up by the author to amaze and engage the viewer. For greater convenience, I list each of them by indicating the relevant “landing point”. This to offer the reader a guided tour that facilitates the permanence.

In all, there are six artistic places to visit. Each of them wants to represent the relative title or name of the landing point (The Light, The Tower, The Grid, The Reflex, The Sphere, The Dome) in a geometric-abstract form.
I appreciated the manipulative technique of the shapes as well as the ideas on the colors and the relative refraction. For this reason, I enjoyed taking 3D pictures, as that Solkide’s geometric abstractionism lends itself particularly well to two types of image manipulation:
  • the 3D;
  • Morphing video.
The 3D effect you know is that one you can view with appropriate 3D glasses that allow you to see the depth.
Video morphing is the filming technique that allows you to blend from one form to another shape. In this way, you can appreciate the individual structures through the gradual visual passage from one to the other.
To make the idea of what I mean by “morphing video” here is an example:

I would very much like to see a video of this type made from an installation by Solkide Auer.
