Black sphere of 15m of diameter installed in the oculus of a main train station.
In “Blackout”, SpY proposes the installation of a black sphere with a diameter of 15mt to be located in the central oculus of the Logroño intermodal station for “Concéntrico 07” Logroño’s International Festival of Architecture and Design.
The oculus in their architectural origin had the function of windows or as a passage of light.  Etymologically, the word derives from the Latin expression “ochulos” which literally translates as “eye”. In the Neolithic period it was interpreted as a symbol of the gods’ constant vigilance and attention to the actions of human beings.

With this intervention, SpY proposes a reflection through the historical symbolism of the oculus as a window of the gods’ omnipresent observation. It creates a parallel at a time when the digital has gained full presence in our lives through technological windows, establishing itself by way of surveillance, algorithmic observation and a new predictive cybernetic order. A state of digital control that parameterizes our existence and which is gradually changing how we humans relate.
With the installation of this large black sphere, SpY seeks to block the vision and entry of light by occupying the entire oculus perimeter. The volume of the sphere surpasses both sides of the domed ceiling, being observable from different viewpoints of the station and the city.

Esfera negra de 15mt de diámetro instalada en el óculo de una estación de tren.
En “Blackout”, SpY propone la instalación de una esfera negra de 15mt de diámetro que se ubica en el óculo central de la estación intermodal de Logroño para el festival internacional de Arquitectura y diseño “Concéntrico 07”
Los óculos en su origen arquitectónico tenían funciones de ventana o como paso de luz.  Etimológicamente, el vocablo deriva de la expresión latina “ochulos” que se traduce literalmente como “ojo”. En el neolítico se interpretó como un símbolo de la constante vigilancia y atención de los dioses ante las acciones de los seres humanos.

Con esta intervención, SpY propone una reflexión a través del simbolismo histórico del óculo como ventana de observación omnipresente de los dioses. Crea un paralelismo en un momento actual donde lo digital a adquirido una total presencia en nuestras vidas a través de las ventanas tecnológicas, estableciéndose en la vigilancia, observación algorítmica y nuevo orden cibernetico predictivo. Un estado de control digital que parametriza nuestra existencia y que está alterado poco a poco cómo nos relacionamos los humanos.
Con la instalación de esta gran esfera negra, SpY busca bloquear la visión y la entrada de la luz ocupando todo el perímetro del óculo. El volumen de la esfera sobrepasa ambos lados de la cúpula pudiéndose observar desde distintos puntos de vista de la estación y la ciudad.
