3D Miniature Worlds
“Floating Dreams” are miniature worlds composed in boxes by Filipe Pinto Soares.
Official notes about “Floating Dreams”:
(…) Filipe Pinto Soares debuts with a solo show of twelve pieces, divided amongst three dimensional story boxes with little figures and moving structures, known as mobiles, a term created by Alexander Calder (1898-1976) when in the 1930′s he became one of the first artists to use moving sculptures. Some of the pieces in Floating Dreams are powered and lit by solar energy through small panels hidden in their structure. The materials used in construction include miniatures, plastic replicas, aluminium, wood, gold leaf and glass.
A microcosmos of ideas and experiences, of world visions and different contexts, from political views to parallel galaxies portraits, all created with detailed pure humor. Each spectator will have his interpretation. The metaphoric intention comes from the eye of the beholder, from the ability to find details in small structures and to frame these in the dream of the one who created them. These are highly symbolical pieces, with very little of abstract.
