Walkabout revolves around the concept of drift; understood as an energetic impulse that seeks to break with the established order, renouncing conventional form. Adopting a strategy that contemplates displacement from chance. Rejecting the fixed structure and opting for a movement of broken lines and intermittences. The idea is to carry the concept through a polyphony of images of different origins that converse in the same space on different supports. A small geography of sensations, flashes, beams of light that rather than ending in a single point, have an open and dispersed character sustained in time. [ × ]

This work talks about the passage of time in the creative process through the use of visual metaphors. The recording process was very simple, the work acquires most of its meaning in the editing process. [ × ]

"A burst of images from different a's weave together in a rapid succession of v's. Both seem to beat space to find or get rid of their similarities. ""A > v"" is a set of burst shots, carefully alternated during the montage process. It is a record of different textual forms and an attempt to make them remain as an image." [ × ]

Where Reality Turns into Images

"Nowadays, being observed and sharing data is part of our lives, it is something we have become accustomed to. Apps that encourage self-tracking such as Google Maps and others that know our tastes and preferences through algorithms such as Instagram or Tik Tok, of which we ourselves are both the consumer and the product. They accompany us, forming non-tangible microworlds within a screen that absorbs us from reality. We are increasingly opening ourselves up to the public, other users like us. We open ourselves individually, but collectively. We build immaterial walls of sociability. ​This video installation, where it is reflected, is based on the premise made by Guy Debord in The Society of the Spectacle, ""where reality is transformed into simple images, simple images are transformed into reality"", to create an architecture around the intangible world that is the network, intertwining the terms identity, archive and image. Images come and go, crashing against the walls of the wall, trying to go beyond it but without managing to do so, some following the same pattern of movement as others, marked with ribbons. Images taken from the personal archive, some with greater meaning than others but insignificant if we consider the visual overabundance to which we are subjected on a daily basis. It also contains a subliminal message, the appearance of an avatar where they all converge, an instant that can only be appreciated if you decide to stop and snoop on that identity on the net, which in reality is not so different from the others in this hyper-connected world."

"""Los que recuerdan"" (Those who remember) is a piece that was created after considering the dichotomy between Nature and Culture. It is made up of a series of passport photographs that belong to my family photographic archive, on which a looped video is projected, made up of other images of human faces, automatically generated by a web page (https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/). Counterposing the human and the non-human, confronting these two concepts face to face; the images overlap and play with each other, creating a visual metaphor between the natural, people, and the cultural, what we have come to create, in this case generating human faces automatically, totally depersonalising the image of a face."
