In the words of Magdalena Fernández: “1i011 (Forest) is a penetrable installation, made of light aluminum rods of various sizes hinged together, which transforms, breaks and become alive when visitors enter it and run through it. It appears, then, as a vibrant, unstable and mobile “Forest”, formed from a metal structure in unstable equilibrium that agitates, shakes and trembles, interacting with the bodies and other elements found in the space it occupies. This webbing of branches takes over the place in which is located, and it is virtually transformed into a vibrant piece of unpredictable changes and movements. Thus, each viewer makes this landscape in a proper place that is constantly redrawing, in a spatial grid with which he interacts and plays, in a jungle of memories where he can circulate reflectively. In short, this “Forest”, this structure in precarious equilibrium, this exploration through our ways of apprehending and experiencing nature, arises as the possibility of a journey of sensations, in which the occurring mutations, due to the exchange between bodies and spatial intervention device, vitalize the geometric rigor of the structure and the coldness of the materials impregnating them with vibrations, reverberations, waves and resonances”.
