O ser e o aparecer

O ser e o aparecer, September 3 – November 6 2011,Casa França-Brasil, Rio de Janeiro.

“The installation is made by six huge videos, each of them made by 12 smaller screens that create a grid effect. Each video shows in loop a photo from the Black Eyed Susan series that I have reworked in a digital way. I was inspired by coloured full length windows. As my videos, these windows receive light from behind and their edges create a thick grid around the figures.

This “hybridizing” is for me a new occasion to show my photos in a different way: they become bright objects and lose their photographic status.
By adding movements with graphic frameworks on the photos, they become animated films, or, better, television images. The framework evokes the digitalization of the image and changes its original tone in a more saturated one.”
