The Softboy is an audiovisual creepypasta that narrates an encounter with the Softboy, a soft and gentle being. The non-spectral, non-monstrous, but terrifying figure of the Softboy serves as an archetype to unravel soft/soft masculinity and its role in the sophistication of macho violence. [ × ]

"The piece constitutes a disarmament of the very concept that gives it its title, a concept used profusely in the world of video art, sometimes to excess. The tape begins with a real-time recording of the feedback generated by connecting the video camera and the television monitor while broadcasting, a situation that originates uncontrolled images between these two magnetic fields. This footage is, in turn, shown on a museum monitor and the scene is recorded by a camera that projects what it sees onto a screen... And so on until, after a few more steps, it collapses, destroying the 'single-channel' concept from within. It is an immersion into the interior of these dimensions, trying, in some way, to reach intermediate and mysterious terrains where the technological and the human converge and confront each other.

This piece reflects on the potentiality of the perceptive act, what appears, without the envelope and occlusion established by the utilitarian or instrumental, in order to show the active universe and the strangeness that preserves the everyday, waiting for that look, action or articulation that reveals that intimate place where the multiple possibles await, the intimate beauty of the materials, their mass of hidden attractions, manifesting the instability of the living.

Bondarchuk's film adaptation of War and Peace opens with a voice-over: "Every idea with great consequences is born of something tremendously simple”. The trivial thought of a human being can lead to a revolution, a war, the end of a civilisation. The side view of several browser tabs with three news items: the augmented version of Apocalypse Now, Messi's reactions to the cancellation of a friendly match, the discovery of the remains of a Napoleon's soldier in the Russian campaign. Everything burns. [ × ]

The boundaries between physicality and the new virtual realities are becoming increasingly blurred. The latter, which have been incorporated into our lives for decades, have reached such a level of development that they are in a process of full mimicry with reality, and are completely changing the perception under which we previously conceived of the world. Digits speaks of this virtual symbiosis, but also of death (or rather, non-death) in the virtual landscape, where the most similar thing we can find is the blue window that appears on the computer when it stops working.

In this piece the sea is presented as a symbol of the dynamics of life, of the transitory. It proposes a slow gaze from which to look at the process of contemplation as a poetic exercise; to recreate oneself in observation in order to internalise the balances inherent to nature. The house, made of mirrors, is reflected in the water and is at the same time a reflecting agent, proposing an act of dissolution with nature that encourages us to rethink our ways of being in the world.
