Quakes 19 A 02
Fine Art print and score on Fredrix Archival Print Canvas 340gsm, 50x50cm, 2018.
These pieces are part of a series titled Quakes, where the locations of tectonic
plates’ movements that took place in the pacific coast of the Americas
have been encoded into an algorithm. It draws thousands of lines
that depict how the weave of the everyday is torn apart by bursts of
energy. Massive forces played out along 8 tectonic plates become subtleties
on canvas, their interactions transformed into thin, calm lines on a white
background as sequential change interrupts the steady, homogenous fabric of
stability. The continuous fabric of time and space is transformed by progressive
intensities, coupled with disturbances, at some moments, the fabric
stretches, rips, compresses and folds into itself. Some of the qualities of
seismograms remain in this drawings, bringing a dose of rigour and a scientific
feel to it, at the same time strong unpredictability is achieved: rigorous, precise,
sharp charts are filtered by an stochastic approach, allowing the depiction of
encoded data to acquire a new dimension.
