El Vacío Installation New York

El Vacío is a collaborative atmospheric multi-media project that creates a monument to a feeling. At the project’s core is a series of photographs taken by Gogy on his cell phone, a tool well suited for spontaneity. He approached Nikolai Rose to collaborate on the design of a book for the images, as well as the creation of an immersive installation to embody the El Vacío experience. The installation utilizes all aspects of the project—photographs, audio soundtrack, and candle scent—to create an intoxicating world.

“El Vacío is boundless, intoxicating, everything ephemeral, fleeting, blurry, warm, seductive. It passes before you know you’re in it. Being there is euphoric but dangerous, beautiful yet treacherous, dark and cryptic. It is occluded by grey area, lust and living… It is the obstruction of references to the concrete, grounded, physical world. Everything is questionable, nothing definite.”
