Oscar Santillan: Daybreak, visual installation

South American artist Oscar Santillan plays with shadows as his artwork focuses on creating ornate window installation right on the wall of the gallery.

The installation entitled Daybreak is created through a sanding process where the artist sands paint off the wall and uses the powder that falls off to create the floor shadow replica. This technique is not only clever, but it is an extremely simple and effective way to make use of as little material as possible.

His work plays with optical illusions as well as with light, shadows and perspective. The results are beautiful and intricate windows, that would most likely be seen in cathedrals. Just like the way sun and light shines through windows and emanates a shadow, Oscar Santillan effectively accomplishes this with his beautiful pieces

good god get away those thoughts that make me feel like nothing truly makes me happy lol

i think i can fend them off but the fact that i even have to makes me wonder if i’m living life the way i want to or if i need to change my perspective. sadly that is easier said than done but what’s self improvement if it comes easy?

i hate when multiple people are mad at me and i can’t figure out if it’s coincidental or if i’m just a fucked up person.

In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn’t fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn’t because the universe is cruel. It’s because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don’t appreciate things that fall into our laps.
