Dynamics of the work:
The experience has a temporal and spatial development. When the
people enter the installation space, their position triggers the
projection of characters and words from texts randomly; as well as
sounds and images of tension and breaking of materials depending on the area
is found. .
The texts are a selection belonging to the Argentine writer Jorge Luis. Borges and
French writer Philippe Sollers.
If someone stops anywhere in space, the
characters and words that he put together with his walk begin to fade into the
dark of the screen. If you stop long enough, the text, map
armed, he will hide again.
There is a thin strip, in which if you
transits along she can trigger a text in order and read it
Every time the sequence of projections is activated, the text
scattered on the screen is erased and another sequence begins
When the person leaves the region that the work occupies, the text
is slowly fading away. If someone enters immediately afterwards,
will produce other writing patterns on those already established by the person
The work admits the presence of many people at the same time. With their movements, develop the
text; also break it and put it together successively.
By means of the projection of
random characters and words, I look for the break of meaning of the text, in
its grammatical order. The words suspended in the darkness of the plane can
unfold its symbolic dimension.
I seek to suspend the
driving order of the linearity of the text, a revalidation of the space that
surrounds the white of the leaf, the darkness of the plane in space.
Brief outline of operation:
This installation is carried out through systems that interact
successively with each other.
The positioning system is a Martin equipment
Lighting Director (MLD) that fixes the coordinates of the position of people
in space by ultrasound. This data is read by software from a PC that
it is programmed with the conditions placed on the space and time of
evolution of the work. In this instance, algorithms decide what to do with the person's trajectory at that moment. Based on this data, video, sound, characters, words, are activated.
The display of the text is not
infinite as one might think, the various texts that make up the map that the
people develop, have a limited number of words and characters. Yeah
well their combinatorics is a sidereal figure, this number of permutations
