PERFORMANCE BASED

PORTRAIT NU D'UN INDIVIDU SOCIAL

[...] is a research into our intimacy within our socialisation as social beings being influenced by a society and its people influenced by it. 

Designed as an installation, it is conceived as a reflective performance that engages the one going through this process to acknowledge the influences that our socialisation has on himself.

 

This work has been conceived while following the "Do Your Own Method" class at the Susan Batson acting studio. I just had failed the exercise by proposing an interpretation of a childhood need with "The clock of the Lost Figure" and was redoing another proposition starting with this set design idea.

THE CLOCK OF THE LOST FIGURE

[...] is a research into time; as to ourselves within a moment. This work questions the action in itself, dissected as the parts of ourselves that lead to a decision.

Designed as an installation, it is imbedded as the physical interaction that we would have with our mind if it had a form; and imbued with the concept of the projected ourself onto a reality that appears coherent, for a time. 

 

This work has been conceived while following the "Do Your Own Method" class at the Susan Batson acting studio. As being asked to reflect on a need from our childhood, came to me this set design; as a starting point for the exercise.

INSTALLATION BASED

THE CLOCK OF THE LOST FIGURE

[...] is a rhetorical quizz aimed to propose an argumentative reasoning with ourselves questioning the settings of our currencies as a value of exchange. As moving forward in the questionnaire, users are supposed to propose a value that would be in accordance with theirs; understand that the one implemented today isn’t- but, that it could be another way - as the rhetoric process that they’ve been through proposed them. To me, this work is a mise en abime of the making of an ideology; a cohesive system of thought founded on language. 

This work has been conceived while following Rodrigo de Benito Sanz class at the International Center of Photography.

GETTING OUT

[...] is a research into the process of looking to an escape within our minds. It questions whether the choice can be of ourselves; as if we would be able to take the leadership of our mental existence- whether the change can only occur if a new settings is inputted; that would then take us out o f the circumferences of our settled way to interpret our existences.

 

This work has been conceived while following Jean Marie Casbarian class at the International Center of Photography; and in collaboration with Itamar Dotan Katz.
