This capture is a suggestive microcosm of blue sunlight trapped in prison, (field view size: 2.9 x 4.4 in).

We are matter, energy and emotions.
I want to pay homage to our star that illuminates the world, and life. And also to the color for to construct aesthetic experiences that feed our fragile memories, our dreams and our existence. Processes that take place in our creative mind of logic gates with switches of colors. The creative mind: the completely "irrational" and so exclusive trait of the homo sapiens.

As context I have chosen the solar cell, It produces electricity from sunlight, a inexhaustible source of clean, renewable and ecological energy. At a microscopic level, its unpublished and unexplored chromatic landscapes are the protagonists of my impressions and expressions of a journey through microspaces of light, energy and color.

From the Sun we receive astronomical amounts of energy (1000 W/m²).
A part of this energy, as light, comes to the Earth and reaches the microcrystals of our solar cell.
In the inner layers the quanta of light are transformed into electrical energy.
On the surface, sunlight interacts allowing us to see the color, which in turn generates large doses of "emotional energy."

But color is first and foremost an immaterial entity, is not in the things, it is created in the mind and exists only in it. It is the result of brain activity, orchestrated by several neurotransmitters that, during the psychophysical process of visual perception, initiated in the retina, converts the nerve impulses into the "sensation of color" and the universe of emotions emanating from it.

Color is essential in art, as is line, form, concept and light.
But mostly, as a fundamental element of the code of our visual language, it is a powerful expressive tool and of communication.

As a medium I use the digital photography with the help of a microscope. In this case I used macro photography.
