Fine Art print on Hahnemühle Art Canvas Smooth, 370gsm, 96x96cm, 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.
