June 29: Igualada Cemetery 3
The dénouement of the cemetery exploration.
The lowest level is the main walk, representing the "river of life" idea if I understand the descriptions correctly, and it is flanked by loculi on both sides.
The ground there is intriguing, with all these wooden beams and interspersed trees and sculptures.
A concentration of gabion is to be found at the end of the procession.
The gabion separates the lower and middle level here as well as bounding the upper edge of the middle level.
The pool of space at the end of the lower level.
The top edge of the gabion.
Even here though, sculpted concrete forms are still to be had.
The crossed steel pipes at the upper end of the main walk: note that they're wheeled at their bases and pinned to the posts — I bet this is to allow for expansion and contraction without any of the members forcing each other to distort.
A screened niche next to the lower walk.
Looking up to the crosses from the screened niche.
Mysterious steel panels at the lower end of the niche.
Back inside the large chamber, note the multiple colors of diffuse light on the ground below the opening: secondhand sunlight to the left, bluish sky light to the right.
Another look inside the endlessly fascinating corner opening of the chamber, with all kinds of light interacting on its surfaces.
Eventually, after an hour and a half of free exploration, it was time to depart from the cemetery and reenter the normal world of the living.
