A vortex creates a dynamic elliptical form in constant flow. Its spiral rotation produces a centrifugal force that drags and concentrates the matter into an invisible depth.
This project came out of the research around the vortex and it focus on the documentation and compilation of analogous forms to it. At its first stage, the work began with water vortexes: marine whirlpools.
On July 2011 I traveled Northern Norway with the purpose of encounter, explore, experience and document the world's largest sea vortex: the Saltstraumen Maelstrom.
The Saltstraumen Maelstrom is a colossal natural phenomenon compose, not only by powerful whirlpools, also by great water risings, like a volcano eruption, the fluid constantly emerges into the surface. This astonishing amount of flows and tides irregularities create uncountable quantity of small and enormous vortexes that constantly and rapidly move forward in a permanent oscillation movement between creation and destruction.
As a result of this experience the project includes 3 different rapprochements to the phenomenon through video, photography, documents and maps.
