Negro de Luz (Dark of Light) was a sculpture exhibit that had, as a theme, the blend of materials, that was, in a way, opposed. In this case: white marble and dark slate. We were commissioned to produce a poster and flyer for the exhibit that depicted the interaction of the two materials. It was important for the client that the characteristics of each material were somehow showed.
After some trial and error, we realized there was no way to actually "show" the characteristics of the rocks, especially not in the way the client wanted (rugged surface, weight, etc.), with the budget we had. The first ideas involved some relief work, varnishes and other solutions, that blew the clients budget. To solve this, we opted for a more abstract approach, using minimalist sculpture as inspiration, using colour as the protagonist, and a dynamic composition to convey weight.
The result was met with uneasiness. It was accepted finally accepted but it was only after a good reaction from the public that the client truly came to terms with the proposal.
