Interested in experiencing the present moment and materialise the way memories affect what we see, in the ‘gerund of touch’, I have moved from photography as a ‘record image’ to photography as a ‘living image’ using computer programming. I have developed an algorithmic-code to give photographs an independent life, self-generating when someone observes them: the photograph and the viewer are entailed in an unending exchange, doing and undoing, unfolding a realm of infinite and random possibilities.
In my work, time reveals itself in two-way layers rather than chronologically. To me, rocks have this characteristic, they act as palimpsests: a surface that rises to the surface. A paper-rock made by a photograph is what keeps the time in the installation. The presence of the paper-rock is physical, digital and virtual, looking for a mixed reality that is material and immaterial at the same time. I have created visual riddles by combining the algorithmic and object condition of the paper-rock’s matter. I am interested in photographs that act rather than represent through visual interactions of viewers. I am interested in how the dynamic encounter between image, technology, memory and us has its agency.
