The reality: “The Giant scenario"The Space appears as a breathing entity that contains the concept of future reflections and artistic interventions. The reality, the Giant Scenario is a research that approaches the city space as a living body that seeks for our attention. Step by step I will develop a metaphorical diagnosis, a scan of the functionality of space organs, creating an aesthetic, emotional, sociological and physical approach of the space as a body. As working methodology I will address the space, with a critical vision on sensorial and visual awareness. In order to map our environment I will draw and recompose the elements of the space, collecting lost details and objects on walks (derives). Moments where I will get lost into a world of colors, shapes, ornaments, sounds, rhythms… and relate to places that are damaged, abandoned, dead or ill... The research will be a resource of a urbanist and emotional mapping of the space and its graphical potentialities within a new scenario, a new life, a new narrative of forgotten details. The space will not be the set of public interventions but a living body that incorporates us, an extended form of connections, reconstructions, treatment, placement and intersections.
“ Political ecology is the end of Nature”
"How do you change your situation? What is the mechanism by which you change your life? That’s politics. That’s the political question. It’s about negotiation, or it’s about revolution, or it’s about terrorism, or it’s about careful step-by-step planning – all of this is political in nature. It’s about how people, when they get together, agree to change their situation. "
Rethinking the space as a living organism, a research that redefines space as a body. A poetic and symbolic reference that suspends the illness as a metaphor. A reveal of malfunctions and disabilities of the organs and metabolism in the space. A semiotic analyses that transfer an organic illness to ‘illness’ as a property of space: as the visible outcome of the invisible symptoms that encounter the spatial organism and its vulnerable form of human organization.
In order to make a diagnosis of symptoms such as ‘damaged’, ‘abandoned’, ‘broken’, ‘bruised’, ‘wounded’, ‘forgotten’. The genesis of meaning takes place when the metaphor is expressed by an action/ intervention. In order to re-write the physical damage of the patient/space, the hilling process illustrates concepts of topography and space surgery.
This research relates the singularity and weakness of humanity to the complex layering of nature’s politics and the impact of human interference with natural processes. It reveals the cataclysm of nature and its natural upheaval against humanity. Using the reference of cordyceps as an organisms that invade, alters and affect the behavior of the host, this station is a research in progress: a animist approach to reading the traces of life in the space.
B.O.T. Boxes of Transiency, suspend the hidden fissures of our existence. Using healing as a metaphor, the clinical perception of human health condition, reflects the state of our planet earth. An experiment, a laboratory that equally embraces the life of species . Besides the ethical quest, it relates the singularity and weakness of humanity towards the layers of the politics of nature.
