In 1959, Joan Miró referred to his fascination for immobility as an expression of the idea of ​​infinity with these words: «Immobility makes me think of the large spaces in which movements occur that do not stop in a moment given, movements that have no end. It is, as Kant said, the immediate irruption of the infinite into the finite. A pebble, which is a finite and immobile object, suggests to me not only movements, but endless movements. That translates, in my paintings, into shapes similar to sparks that emerge from the frame like a volcano. ”1

Miró was especially attracted to infinite space and how endless movement is represented on canvas with the help of minimal and finite elements. To achieve this goal, he used small dots or contrasting colors in saturated squares.

Between 1969 and 1979 he created a set of space paintings, among which is Oiseau dans l'espace (Bird in space, 1976), a dense and rich white background that represents an immense void only interrupted by a slight dotted line and two dots like sparks.

When contemplating this painting you can see the flight path of a bird. Miró uses a minimal representation of the bird to let our imagination fly, awaken memories and "see" the infinite in the finite. Following his example, some of our images of birds are simple points, shadows or metaphors that represent the concept of a bird more vividly than the actual image of a bird itself.
In our work, the interpretation of the images is left to hands of the viewer's memories. Each photograph encodes a set of personal experiences around the described subject, but the final meaning will depend on the experiences of the viewer. Like Miró, the way we create this narrative space and this complicity is a slow and natural process: «I consider my studio as an orchard. Here I have the artichokes. There, the potatoes. You have to cut the leaves for the fruits to grow. When the time is right, you have to prune. I work as a gardener… Things come slowly… They follow their natural course. They grow, they mature. It is time to do grafts. I must water… I ripen several things in my head. So I always work on many things at the same time ».
