ODE Europe I, Melilla Beach 2014 or Homage to "La Plage" by Patrick Bokanowski (2015) DVD NTSC, Color, 03:12 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: found footage, polititcal / social activism

Concept Series: Video "without-camera" reinterprets "camera-world" The images and sounds are extracted from the free virtual network, re-signified from the assembly. Video: A journey through sound and image processing referencing filmic imagery of the cultural construction of Europe, imagery that contrasts with the "visual" content of moving images which are extracted from the virtual network of those crossing the borders of Europe "without permission" (Melilla, Spain, 2014). In turn, such images are interfered with by visual noise from a "TV" without broadcast. As a found-footage piece I recompose the image no longer with the "matter" of the film, but with pixels of the media that mediate us. I experimented with the materiality of the rhythmic interferences that textualize the image, transforming the "objective" media perspectives into "subjective" auteur perspectives that ironically play with visual and audible "noise" to deconstruct the memory dictates of the informational present P.D. ODE Europe is a Work posthumously dedicated to all those who have died crossing our borders...

Codes of... senses II (2014) DVD NTSC, color, 4:36 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: found footage, philosophical, political & social activitism

Codes of... senses II, Codes of significance Concept Series: Video "without-camera" reinterprets "camera-world" The images of riots in Istanbul online (2013) (those they allowed to change a political system) here are transformed into colored blocks, as the minimum unit of representation "the pixel". Atom of this new world we live, from each of our specific cultures. They are as the graphic charts in motion, that become (paradoxically) invisible the tangible reality of what they represent behind the informational codes ready to be scattered through the visual network insensitive to the "senses." These codes reveal parts of source images together with sound quickly recognize and gives them meaning. Sounds that speak directly to our "emotional body" and will cause "feelings" from "senses" to return to "feel" the cold-date information in the world in which we live.

Origen del mundo (Eros / Tanatos) o Hirohima sin amor (Origin of the World (Eros / Thanatos) or Hiroshima loveless) (2015) DVD NTSC, Color, 03:30 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: found footage, history

Concept Series: Video "without-camera" reinterprets "camera-world" The images and sounds are extracted from the free virtual network, re-signified from the assembly. The body as a metaphor of love and war, Eros and Thanatos. The title alludes to two cultural imaginary; Courbet's famous painting "L'Origine du monde" and the movie of Alain Resnais' Hiroshima mon amor ". At the beginning of the movie of Resnais two bodies are shown in attitude of love. Here in "Origin of the World" I show a sex without love, Hiroshima without love. Only the instinct of sex and death. Where the body becomes the site of the battle between Eros and Thanatos, between pain and pleasure between the informational explosion and an orgasm.

Todo es de color (2015) DVD NTSC, Color, 00:02:46 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: found footage, polititcal / social activism

Concept Series: Video "without-camera" reinterprets "camera-world" The images and sounds are extracted from the free virtual network, re-signified from the assembly. It is an "aesthetic experience" of the "information ethics" that misinformates by saturation and converts any event into a "show" of the real. This piece started as "video in progress" during the events that took place in Gaza in 2014. I extracted images from the network of two antagonistic "visions" of the same conflict to be re-signified from the "island edition " or digestion. Not with a "hard" nor "soft" assembly (as claimed Farocki) where the images dialogue between them, they are mounted with the overlap here. The images scream them all at once because every war is a failed dialogue. Building a temporal palimpsest with the aesthetic recreation extracted from information bombing until arriving to almost total abstraction, and invite us to contemplate this spectacle of light and color, as pure reality.

Autoretrat: TEXTures d'un camí (self-portrait: TEXTures of a path) (2016) Digital File, color, 7 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: biography & autobiography, personal/diary/journal

(self-portrait: TEXTures of a path) Who am I? Am I anymore that a collective portrait of all the glances I have received? I am all the words that you have said about me? Am I your hatred when you look at me and condemn me to abyss? Am I your love when you look at me and you give me heaven? I am in your eyes. I am in all eyes and I am not in any I am what your eyes want to see That is why I walk, I walk, I walk I walk to uproot the feet of false beliefs, to move the thought, and for the truth to fall by its own weight. To return the body as the only truth, To hear the beat of my heart as the only horizon. Who I am ?, I know now that I am the one who walks. I walk to be able to walk, to be able to be. And share the experience of my eyes, the "texture of a WAY" with you. Since now I know it would be nothing without you. After 18 moves (post burned my house) I arrive to Les Fonts (Barcelona) where my mother was born. The emotional impact and the sensations invaded all my skin. There is so much density in the Pandora's moving boxes of my voluntary and involuntary memories that can not defragment my hard drive now for constructing an intelligible and linear narrative about my self. "TEXTures of a path" was established as a few small democratic "units of meaning" made from text and audio notes that I have been doing, over more than a year, during my walks to Les Fonts, and something of some box ... Where the images and texts are superimposed to weave a visual texture that lead to the view the experiences and inner-feelings, to "feel" the skin eye audio- visuals.

Autoretrat: Tempest a "Les Fonts" d'una memoria (Storm in "the Sources" of a Memory) (2016) Digital File, color, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: biography & autobiography, personal/diary/journal

In this series I work with democratic information devices. I transform the noise of all devices on a subjective poetic gaze. That contrasts with the objective eye of the informational language. I was recently installed in the village where my mother was born, I was without wifi nor television. As the only entertainment I was contemplating the trees in my front door. One night I experienced the spectacle of nature with me Fireworks storm. So I filmed my first storm in "Les Fonts" (sources) with all devices that I had "hand": mobile, desktop, and was not professional photo camera...and I made an assembly with textures I was offered the different images and sounds to create a visual and auditory rhythm. As if lightning storm allowed draw of the dark night of oblivion, the ghosts of the memory of my origins. Or as if, for a moment, return to the present deconstructed snapshots in time did lose all its original clarity and sharpness.

Autoretrat: Soot-film "ventana abierta al mundo" or re-interpretation of Beckett's Film (2015) Digital File, color, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: found footage, philosophical

Video "without camera" reinterprets "camera-world". The contraposition of images from my window as "an open window the world" through the myth of transparency (film metaphor proposed by Andres Hipano) with the images from Samuel Beckett's film. Overlaying an open sight of the world with the actions of the man who flees from being perceived. These come together in the final point of view that transforms the theme "to be is to be perceived" into "not being is to be perceived" with the eye of the lens as a destroyer of the visible.
