to feel

July 9, 2011
i am here after a __________ state of certain emotion coming out. How wonderful is to feel, to feel the body changing and then the potential of tears coming out, simply letting the space be a container or even an abstract ephemeral mindful awareness. Then how amazing is to have the capacity of experiencing their changes and transformations, body, mind, gap relation, encounter???.
What a simple thing is to relate, but how difficult to deal or understand to the concepts of outside, artificial, natural, inside (strange terms isn´t it) I have always wonder about the border, the border of what I think/feel I am and then what I am. Of course I'm not interested in entering in pureness approximations, neither to question if there is an essence or not. I am just for instants feeling so weird about "me" in relation "with".

I've been recently with lots of reflections about the fact that if I move then I am, so when I say "this" or "that", when I think "this" or "that", when I feel "whatever" in fact it is an infinite dance already gone, grasped and gone, heard and gone, felt and gone. So then I question myself from where is build up this necessity of belonging. The steps we make, they keep going, the ideas as well and then we are in the point of constructing/articulating a variety of speeches or languages... are we all the time communicating? when we realise we are, when we realise this is what makes us a "we", identifying our references, charactesitics, values, etc. then we can recognize and clearily say I am from here, not only geographically or culturally speaking, somehow, we are "part of" and we can express it because the other receives what I am trying to say, act or perform in daily life. So then life is just about who i am and how I am in relation to infinite environments/setting. Is this what we recognise as an impulse? Is this what appears that let us go forward?

How to keep instigating, how to keep being present, just that... to see with beloved eyes what interests us...for me the most revolutionary standing is precisely to keep going, to just do it, to continue unframing and reframing, to dream and make new territories of understanding, FEELING.

How awesome is to feel, just TO FEEL! (this is awareness and been AWAKED)

outline

February 7, 2011

Recently I was reflecting and writing about point of entrance to my work and practice and it’s a great exercise to identify the position, sources, references and experiences that have been affecting my research: -context shifting, experiences, Jerome Bel, theoretical writings, Rancier, teachers, experimenting, setting up platforms for experimentation, cultural heritage, people…(???)-  I think the original impulse has been shaped from innocence to blurriness, from no methodology toward inquires of new methodologies and/or viceversa, it has changed depending as well of the environment and the tools I have reached since I started this path. What, why, how, where, are the questions always beating. Am I an artist? And if so, what does it mean?  In its political force, yes, as an election and potential as well, but I like to perceive it more in terms of how I embody this concept through my practice. What qualities I’m interested to feed/get? How I address and understand this position in society? Is it about making, presenting, offering impulses, researching, communicating, and playing with realities, with fiction and reality, seducing?? I don’t want to define it putting myself on a specific and unique pattern, but I bet for full engagement toward the position we choose. At this point, emerging and presenting my work, being part of some projects, I realize that my interest has been focused on opening spaces for investigations, highlighting the strength and power of action, believing in the need of irruptions, sort of openness and potential changes about the notions we have and create for our existence. I think new territories most be expanded where we articulate differently our relations (social, psychological, emotional, etc.). Networks that confront and dig within the different artistic fields and the relation with other ones like science, philosophy, psychology, etc. 

My work so far relates close to my intuitions trying to understand my own way to deal with the sources and the materials/concepts I bring out, looking also for feedbacks and new ways of responding. I can certainly clarify that I am mainly interested-motivated on human/social relations/conditions, perception of reality in general and specifically on time and space, language constructions, contextualization and decontextualisation, with how to frame and unframe the references and own constructions. I can say I am having my personal process as a free lancer, without ignoring the modes of production and world society structures, observing closely my individual being on collaborative or collective circumstances
 

sobre

February 7, 2011

Sobre la resonancia y el silencio

 Sobre el individuo y la imposibilidad de ser individuo,

Sobre la divisibilidad del ser

Sobre el inter-ser y las conexiones con el universo

Sobre la presencia y la afección

Sobre la liberación y la autonomía creativa

El artista y la sociedad

El estado y el fluir de lo que deviene siendo

De las transformaciones e ideas de manifestación

De la interacción y el efecto

De la verdadera práctica espontánea y el movimiento

Sobre el espacio que existe por si mismo

Sobre la instalación del espacio construido por la percepción

Tendencias y experimentos

Construcción de un lenguaje

Sujeto conciente

Sujeto frente a su realidad

Objeto de percepción

 

quote

February 6, 2011


“expression unleashes affect, affect is what touches.
Presence, gesture and speech transform the quality of
contact between people...The expressive techniques of art
are able to multiply those immediate changes along a
thousand pathways of the mind and senses.”

                                                                          (Holmes, 2008)

Mission 2

Yo digo baila

This one is a very simple task. Appropiation of movement. Playing with fragmented body in order to see it differently and the nice effect of a shadow.











Mission 1

CerdoZen

Thinking about what do moves me, what I'm against. It's transalated into this small film, home made film with the desire of ironically put the question: who is the pig? How word meanings can sometimes be affected by the way we act and perceive world. I suddenly thought about the association of an animal to the concept of dirtiness.
A critic to meat consumption, specifically pork meat and maybe the asumption of any kind of value to this animal. Do we really know all the implications?














 

Motion & Friction

April 3, 2010
Inspirado en un encuentro e intercambio particular, este espacio es para vertir todas las efervecencias que acontencen dentro y fuera del cuerpo / inspired on a particular encounter and exchange, this space is created for all efervecence effects happening inside-outside the body

MOVIMIENTO:  fenómeno físico que se define como todo cambio de posición en el espacio que experimentan los cuerpos de un sistema con respecto a ellos mismos o a otro cuerpo que se toma como referencia. Todo cuerpo en movimiento describe una trayectoria / Motion, a change in position

FRICCIÓN: fuerza de rozamiento entre dos superficies en contacto. 1) fuerza que se opone al movimiento de una superficie sobre la otra. 2) fuerza que se opone al inicio del movimiento /  Force resisting the relative lateral (tangential) motion of material elements in contact.
