VIDEO | Luz Tecleada



My friend Gonzalo Pardo asked me to make a video using a Nokia T70 cellular for his main page in fresh forward,  a site about young architects in Madrid.  Gonzalo is this kind of incredible guy that is always making competitions and winning them, such an efficient architecture passionate hard worker, so I decided to make a tribute to the classic phrase that some architect once said: "architecture is the play of light and shadow" and literally I played with the light bulb. The keying of course  refers to the now a days inseparable relationship of architects with the computer keyboard.
