Colosos Wall Display at Centro Cultura España (Lima, Peru) 2016

Curated by Alejandro Castellote, this site-specific installation addresses the relationship existing between humans and a symbol that adds music to the act of walking around the city: the zebra crossing. The material we used in order to intervene the walls of this building is part of a series of photographs belonging to the project “A”, in which various people were photographed while walking on the pavement. So as to isolate these human silhouettes from the rest of the analog images that contain them, we used the camera of a mobile phone as a digital surgical knife. This device allowed the figures to get rid of their photographic past, in their transit towards the third dimension of the exhibition space. Once each figure was free from its weight on the wall, it was able to merge with the zebra crossing into a geometrical embrace which impregnated the digital cement that was needed to rebuild the foundations of the city. These new cities are the perfect habitat for modern man to be born again as a Colossus.
