Ensayo sobre circunferencia, 2013-

Ongoing serie

 

Ensayo sobre circunferencia, is an ongoing investigation which deals with the concept of circumference. Some of the questions that guide the working process are: What happens with the limits that construct a circumference? Are they flexible, how? How long does a circumference last?

 

In the video Ensayo sobre circunferencia 4, 2014  a hair is being knotted in several occasions, before a knot there is a circle that lands on a previous knot, knot over knot a circumference vanishes. 

 

Ensayo sobre circunferencia 5, 2014 is a piece which plays out in multiple times. Rests, stretches, unfolds. There are two basic conditions for this piece:

1. Hangs on the wall, losing its own curvature.

2. Remains rolled onto itself, generating potential energy.

Once the paper unfolds itself entirely, recovering its straight line, its time to unhang it and roll it onto itself again.

The time that the piece stays rolled onto itself, generating potential energy, depends on the person who establishes a relationship with.
