Obscura Capitulum aims to deconstruct the current world to rebuild it from its foundations. The installation seeks to cause the contemplative time of the Abbey’s slow movement where it is located. Thanks to its optical system, the Abbey is reflected upside down, making its bell tower a pillar of the image itself, as well as a temporary pillar of the world.

Obscura Capitulum consists of a central cubic structure, which is the camera obscura itself, and in which visitors are invited to penetrate and interact with the image of the Abbey. In addition, it has a semi-aerial path that develops and puts together the space around the camera.
