The resolution of a picture tell us how much details we can observe on it, the picture is an output processed by the machine, the device is designed to produce a picture as much defined as possible. The losing resolution is produced when the machine translate this picture into an output material.
Like with the thoughts to the word. In the thoughts the abstract idea is perfect and just when we try to communicate it the idea starts to lose resolution like In a long Chinese whispers that bring us in a total distortion.
So the picture renderize simultaneously different languages, on one side the origin, the original info, the one from the creator of it, the one with the abstract associated ideas, and for the other side the technical languages from the machine, pencil, printer, etc…
When we want the machines will process is own material results them there is an acceleration of this losing resolution cause of the ethos of the machine to increase the results. The copy of the copy, for example, product of the copy machine, each time collapse more imperfections that are generate at the moment of the impression causes of the imperfections of the material, paper, tones etc, and each time is more distorted
Chinese Whispers is a long-term project, base on a systematic distortion, that collect in a different formats a similar experience, a distort outcome of visual or sonorous input through a system.
The Chinese Whispers game hit the concept of what I was doing. The game has an special mechanism where the message is been passed down from one member to an other suffering changes due to small misunderstanding in between them, giving a completely different outcome, a message that holds participant's collective details.
The creation of this system is where my interests are. I use surrounding materials such as a sound, if we can say the sound is potential material, or visual input as a light or even the contemplation of a landscape or scenario to shape an installation, which frequently creates an interaction with the audience. My work offers different experiences from the position of an observer but also as interaction, engaging the audience to participate within the system.
A positive and negative journey
is a compilation of graphic outcomes using the copy machine in a shape of an animation/film. It consists in to copy the outcome of the copy machine 400 times. There is an acceleration of the lose of resolution because the ethos of the machine is to improve the result so when it copy itself generates a quick distortion.
Recording Machine is a big scale interactive installation where the audience paint a particular space with the use of they voice
The sound disappears when the emitters stop to emit, but not the effect of it.
If I told you “I love you” I don’t need to tell you all the time, because the fact that I told you once make you generate a mental picture of it, you remember it.
Recording Machine is a factory of content, is like dissecting a brain and see the impact of sound and message on it. The multiplicity of layers upon written generate a visual rhythm through which to interpret the character of a conversation. It contains all the audio information that has occurred in a given place in a particular time, altering the sound's peculiarity that disappears once the emitters stops.
This instrument, as all the instruments, is an in-between object, control the impute to control the outcome and produce a final object. Is an add to the process of making. It installation consist in to an electronic machine with a theatrical body this machine divide the sound in 6 channels depending of the peach, each channel is connected to a valve that switch on and off depending if the channel is been use by the sound, when the channel is used, the valve let goes trough the ink that is dispersed by a jet nozzle and impact into the wall/paper etc. creating a container of what is been said into the space.
Recording machine is the first generation and it has a very archaic, but efficient, way to work. The sound is amplified and pushed to a loud speaker, the ink is dripping steadily through a membrane on the top of the speaker's cone
Recording Machine has been commissioned to perform at different galleries, design fairs and happenings such as: Red Gallery _2012, Tent London Design Festival _2012, Rca Paradise Milan Design week _2012, Eindhoven Design Week _2012, Tesped Gallery Final degree Show _2012, Converse Press Preview _2013.
A new machine has made each time that the project has been show.

'A Royal Win-Win Deal' and the new generation, hi-tech machines.
The new generation of hi-performing machines where made after a small funding campaign, organized in collaboration with Bendita Gloria , 'How I became a financial product "A Royal win-win deal". At this stage the research I was doing, producing low-res outcomes by hacking and generating systems became something real and tangible where it rich the maximum level, by becoming myself a product, the same as my projects I also start to lose resolution as I was fragmented and sold as a share for the camping.
The installation integrates an electronic machine with a theatrical body into the space that has to be interact with. This machine interacts directly with the audience using a microphone. It divide the sound in 6 channels depending of the peach, each channel is connected to a valve that triggers depending if the channel is been use by the sound or not, when the channel is used, the valve open and let goes through the ink that is dispersed by a jet nozzle and impact into the wall/paper. With the keyboard I can control the speed of the reading of the machine and also the sensibility of the channel, I can adjust the machine for each participant.
Each of the shareholder has a memento of the very first hi-tech machine, one off 100x70cm poster that belongs to this special and private performing. The sound I use to produce this first collection, and because the aim was to try it for first time and them reward my shareholders, was the explanation of the project itself, so the installation outcome is made by its mechanism's explanation.
