Máquinas no perfectas

Exhibition in the Sala Jove of Barcelona

Flyer máquinas no perfectas

All along my days in Barcelona, and with professional training in a photo laboratory named Ribocolor –devoted to marketing/commercial photography and photography studio, I put down the pencils and ink to work with studio-quality analog photography. As a result of photographic experimentation and the acquisition of an enlarger for my own personal domestic lab, my first photo-based project was born: “Kippel – Máquinas no perfectas” (Kippel – Imperfect Machines).

“Kippel – Máquinas no perfectas” constituted a photography exhibition in the Sala Jove of the Generalitat. The project was inspired by the idea of future worlds inside the universe of the novel “¿Sueñan los androides con ovejas eléctricas?” (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? ) by Philip K. Dick. “Kippel”, as per the author, describes how small objects of the human society invade household drawers to the point they fill houses with small objects of unknown use. It is with this theory in mind that I start using small objects in photographic compositions as part of the creative process and experimentation.

These images constitute a series of portraits of fictional mechanic beings with human-type imperfections. These series of 15 photographs would give birth to a creative process from which other photography-based projects and visual poetry poem/objects will emerge.

Taller Miranda

Artistic room in Miranda de Ebro

Within the communal living framework of the Artistic Workshop of Miranda de Ebro, and the Fernán González Youth Hostel of Miranda de Ebro, a place for artistic creation with tactile vocation took place and led into the project “Painting and Touch” that materialized in an exhibition in the city.

“Painting and Touch” was brought to life as a pictorial exhibition with materials in relief and texture for them to be touched by the audience, and thus break the barriers where artwork is kept distant from the spectator. In an attempt to reach further interaction, ten years later this goal would materialize in an exhibition where closer interaction with the audience became possible.
