Reminiscencias del Material

Material and space are elements which are generally more permanent and lasting in time, supporting the fleeting life of man and therefore his memory, like a memory made of material.
Through an overlapping of temporally separated records, try to enter the memory of places to rescue what in them can link the present with the past.
I seek an experience between the virtual and the tangible that consists of two fundamental actions to produce the experiences:
a) During the day: record audio-visual material of the space .
b) At night: projection of the recorded material from the day and record this projection.
These actions must be carried out from exactly the same spot. The result is extracted from the superpositioning of the recordings.
Like an eye that opens at night and shows us the dream, the light of the projector on the space breaks the darkness, opening it, but also bringing it closer, tying the previous days to the present. The technical prosthesis of memory, the motor (projector) is the element which sees furthest away, which speeds up to recover a lost image.
Therefore represents a way of showing places at another speed, producing something similar to the act of remembering, to seek something in memory that has lost definition. This ‘come and go’ between memory and forgetting ends by defining the diffused images, elastic and open, closer to the creation of a memory. A creation which intensifies the values of the reality.
