The Site specific Art (Installation) 'Symphony of the Universe' It is through this study of nature and its mathematical structure where he undertakes this process, based on fostering a source of irradiation that expands in different directions appropriating the place to convert it In a vector of the projection of visual energy. In the 70s in interventions experienced in nature where the projection of the lines made with natural fibers (strings) flash a variety of light rays, it is perceived that they communicate the space between them reflecting the visual levitation of the stroke executed in the landscape .
