Interactive installation that reflects on the echo of our existence in the digital world, and on the tensions generated between an artificial presence and real life itself, presented at Galería Max Estrella in Madrid.
Windows reflects on the echo of our existence in the digital world, and on the tensions that arise between an artificial presence and real life itself. The dedication and dependence on a dematerialised alter ego generates a dyslexia of identity and a competition with our ability to make independent decisions.
"Being present is very difficult, it is a quality we have lost. We are now in constant translation. Our bodies travel through the clouds of data that surround us, aided by technological devices whose functioning and implications we will never understand. These devices measure us, know us, recognise us, help us, make decisions for us, manipulate us and even predict us. They exist."
Windows is able to read the height, speed of movement and see the outline of the figure of the person entering its field of action. This data is received, analysed and translated into light. This interactive installation is a window between the physical and the virtual world.
This artwork aspires to capture time. On the one hand, the instant in which the visitor interacts with it, and on the other, the duration from the day it is activated until the day it closes, recording everything that happens in its field of action. Along with time, the bodies of the public are converted into numbers, shapes and colour, trapped in the programming code 'Windows'. Thus, a part of them becomes part of it forever. These entities, now digital, have a time and space of their own. If no one ever entered the room, the piece would remain dormant, waiting for a body to read, a time to capture, because it never sleeps.
