The processes of a projective nature, through the construction of images, both rigorous and expressive, make it possible to translate the spatial qualities and figurative properties of the space that surrounds us on the level of design, making it possible for those who read the image, the recognition of the object of the space. The model that is created, as a conventional image of objective reality, uses a linguistic code with a precise system of rules. The work presented here, in tents, illustrates, within the code of projective transformations, that operation that transforms on the plane (or rather on a plane π ≡ π’) the same relations that exist between the figures in the perspective, the homology, understood as the process capable of creating an image in which the original one is recognizable in its transformed, preserves its characteristics, and from it we are able to recognize, backwards, the initial image.
