Quakes 70 01_Limited Edition 2 of 10
Fine Art print on Hahnemühle Photo Silk Baryta 310gsm, 55x55cm, 2017.
This piece is part of a series titled Quakes, where data from tectonic
plates’ movements that took place in the pacific coast of the Americas
has 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 become subtleties on canvas, the interactions of the movement of the earth is 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.
