Fish, 2017



The work is a machine connected to a presence sensor. A rubber strip shaped as tail is attached to a grinder lying on the floor. Suddenly, it moves in random and agonic movements, spaced in time, reproducing muscular spasms like a fish out of the water.

This mimetic action refers to the encounter between the industrial
– cold and objective – with the natural, organic and subjective. The unexpected action of a machine assuming an animal despair refers to the hybridism between both universes and the consequences of the industrialization of life as a whole.
