The sculpture is to my old smartphone on which a video of 8.30 hours is played, representing the screen video of my activities on instagram and fragments of life of others in different days, time and condition. The video also contains the audio elements.
What we are today is determined by what we have thought in the past; what we have thought in the past has been influenced by what we have seen, experienced and felt.
This sculpture is an awareness.
We spend about five hours a day on our smartphones and the main form of communication and socialisation is social media. Here our window on the world is torn from our hands and hung on a wall. He continues to transmit what we have done but is now distant, unattainable; we are forced to look at it from outside, to became aware of it. Aware of what we were seeing, of what we were thinking and then creating.
The title, NOW YOU SEE ME, creates a link between the perception of reality and our smartphone; leads us to ask a question: if now, that the smartphone is far away from us, we can see, before, what we were doing?
The link that I've created between the artwork and the object of daily use has to arouse the demand in the observer even outside the exhibition, continuing the speculative involvement started in front of the artworks.
Sculpture can be exhibited in different ways; it needs a continuous energy supply.
