“A Penetrable such as this one in Wynwood opens up a new experience of an aesthetic nature because it deals with moving space. Whether it is us, or the wind blowing that provokes it, the visual and imaginary reality it offers us is like an illuminating path, or Tao. How this illumination is produced depends on the willingness of whoever agrees to experience it. But what we do not doubt is that the challenge he throws at us to change our pre-conceived opinions regarding reality, is sufficient to encourage us to travel the path proposed by him.
Whoever experiences the sensation of finding him / herself within a living object such as Soto’s Penetrables, would then understand the intimate meaning of his work’s poetic structure. Those vibrant rods—all blue, in this case—reveal to us a reality that we forget but which exists deep in our traditional culture, as expressed by the Egyptian and the Greek: nothing is static, life is movement. “ Carlos M. Luis.
