BUSCANDO LA PERMANENCIA
1996. Video installation
6 video channels on three monitors and drawing
I have always been interested in exploring the properties of some artistic media in other media apparently lacking them. This work was an exercise in obtaining a “perspective” through videos. I divided my body in 3 parts with 6 video shots taken in angles that, when shown in 3 monitors located in a specific position among them, reproduced an illusion from the perspective of the moment when I had been lying on the ground of the same room where the piece was being exhibited. This way, I was divided in 3 video screens surveilling the exhibition room for the time it went on.
