"Prosoche" is the mantained atention that guides/facilitates creation, attention focused on the moment and the connection.
Decisive moments, progression of instants and captures of relationship in the process of creation that will become a complete work in permanent transformation.
Frozen actions in fugues and fleeting frames, which revive a dance magnifying the vividness, the force, the colour, the natural environment, the prosoche; a fragmentation orchestrated and received in a new compound of photographic creation.
"Prosoche" is the term used in Stoic philosophy to refer to the attitude and constant practice of mindfulness.
"Prosoche" is necessary to capture the photograph, in the same fashion as creating the dance, which in the end forms part of the aesthetic experience.
With Henri Cartier-Bresson in mind, this photo essay constitutes a collection of different "decisive moments" in progression. It is a confluence between two decisive instantes of creation of creation: dance and photography. .
Underwater dance perfectly materializes the representation of prosoche, the only mental state where creation is possible.
Thus, the dance with its perfect forms could well symbolize all the arts, and therefore, the potentiality of creation and the infinite possibilities that the creative process entails.
The prosoche is obtained with the conjunction of discipline, training and effort, giving way to a state of mind that enables moments of creation, an optimal state.
Observing creation with attention transmits, through the empathic nature of the work of art, the aesthetic experience and the initiation of this optimal state in the viewer as well.
Sustained attention to the work transmits, through the empathic nature of the creation of art, the aesthetic experience and potentially generates that optimal state in the viewer.
Observing works with attention - that is with "Prosoche" - grants the observer a mental state from where "everything is possible"; it is a gateway to the infinite possibilities of creation.
