Variations in Noise and Space
Through my work I look for meeting points between different types of artistic languages, as well as media and materials. Variations in Noise and Space (2016) is a clear example, in this work my intention is to generate a new code between analogue photographic and digital sound; is to create a language that is not only photographic or just sound, and that has as final result an object, a textile in which both processes dialogue. This work is built in different stages, in the first place I select analog images from my personal archive; Once selected, I scan them and modify the format so that this information, initially analog and then digital, is read in the form of sound; once I get the sound file I manipulate it looking for a new sound; then I transform this sound into an image, and finally I print it as a textile. Chance is key in the construction of this work, because when manipulating information there is very little control that I can exercise over it; This chance allows me to question my aesthetics and expand the limits of photography, sound and material. This piece starts from questioning the abstract characteristic of music thought in opposition to the figuration of the photographic image; These two disciplines could be considered as opposed and with this work I intend to challenge them, turn photography into sound and sound into image. I inquire about the process idea and use it to reach the final result; I seek to create process loops; Analog photography is a process in itself, and my work is also a process. In this case, I explore the same information read in different formats and analyzed how it is transformed in each of the stages by finding new aesthetic codes. The final result is a textile, a loom, an object in which two-dimensional and three-dimensional are opposed; After experimenting with different types of printing, I found in the textile the way to bring the image and sound to the manual and tangible.
