Eufonías is a photographic project that continues a creative trajectory in which the author's body interacts with natural environments. In this case, the landscape becomes metaphorical to express not only states of consciousness, but also systems of symbolic correspondences between the human being and the archetypal principles of astrology.

It starts from studies that link the theory of synchronicity and archetypes of Carl Gustav Jung, with the ideas about the myth of Joseph Campbell, the hypothesis of the folded and unfolded universes of David Bohm, the transpersonal psychology of Stanislav Grof, and astrology as a mythical link of correspondences between the macrocosmic and the microcosmic.

Following this line of consciousness evolution, this project deals with the states and forms of emergence from the unconscious to the conscious. The manifestation of this hidden and latent consciousness becomes Euphony *, that is, good sound, harmonic pronunciation. It is a highly complex project; conceptual, formal, executive and visual.

The project is made up of 12 triptychs that correspond to each of the zodiacal constellations: Euphony of the Constellation of AQUARIUS, PISCES, ARIES, TAURUS, GEMINI, CANCER, LEO, VIRGO, LIBRA, SCORPIO, SAGITTARIUS and CAPRICORN.

* The term Euphonia, comes from the Greek εὐφωνία, formed from the roots εὖ (eu = good, good), φωνή (phonē = sound, voice) and the suffix -ία (-ía = quality), refers to the quality it has the pronunciation of a sound that is good because it is harmonic.
