Belén Montero y Juan Lesta

The career of this directors, producers and creatives founders of the collective DSK is so wide as it is varied, but, even though they have worked with numerous genres and formats, the experimentation and the sound have always a special importance on their pieces, which kept moving (during their active years) constantly. This movement is sometimes frenetic, exaggerated, and through repetition or speed it unfolds in all kinds of games: word games, image games, body and choreography games, costume games, humour, and critic games. Exercises for the game of thinking.

O tempo perdido

vídeo SD | colour | sound | 16 min | 2001

People related to the artistic world make a personal interpretation of the isolated verses of a poem. They show us images, or sounds … they interpret … what is “the city and the world”? What is “the room”? What are those that “are reduced to time prisons”? They are the feelings that caused the reflection of the simple verses of a poetry. In the end, the poetry is recomposed to tell us about time, and where do we lose it.

Morphing

HD video | colour | sound | 3 min | 2006

“Morfing” is a spectacular digital animation technique in which two elements that apparently have nothing to do with transform into each other in front of our eyes. This video starts from the physical piece “Homo-Felis”, in which each of the frames of a morphing between a cat and a human was physically created. The result consists of the reconstruction using traditional animation techniques of this morphing between a human and a cat.

Square Religion

HD video | colour | sound | 3 min | 2014

The three-dimensional pixel is a complex unit of inert palpable matter with a nucleus and an shell. However, it has evolved to develop its code in regular fractal repeating structures and to give life to the technological variety that disperses towards the confines of infinity.

Estiven en Galicia e lembreime de ti

SD video | colour | sound | 6 min | 2006

“Estiven en Galicia e lembreime de ti”, is an experiment in live choreography generated in real time, where the traditional Galician tourist image is reinterpreted in an ironic-critical key. This system has been developed to integrate the images in more cities, such as Lisbon, Barcelona or Santiago de Compostela, and can be prepared for any other, adapting the choreographies to the type of live music. Each of the typical Galician locations are visited, in front of which a choreography is performed.
