749.766m3 of summer is the estimated volume of land
which was conquered by the swimming pools of the City of Buenos Aires,
represented in 1:100 scale.
Each cube contains in its interior seeds that can
be germinated through an installation with sprinklers, a wáter tank and a pressurized
pump or by hand. In this regard, either death or life can occur and therefore reflect on
the type of pacts and alliances that we establish politically with other beings
This installation belongs to the Argentine Swimming
Pools Union, that speculates with the possibility of broadening the political
horizon to other impersonal forms of life – that is to say, to all the agents
that, along with human beings, coexist in this peculiar ecosystem.
The Union is the
first one that unionize and object instead on an subject and fantasizes with
the possibility of a dialogue between things and the human being. A parliament
where objects have a voice and the ability to act, so as to highlight the
existence of other ways of perceiving, claiming, demanding, and being.
