Space reading, 2021, performance
back main menu

In English there is the word "mind reading," which refers to the ability to discern the thoughts of others without the normal means of communication. Space Reading shares with it the attitude of being aware and responsive to that which from the space comes towards me: a ray of light through the blinders, the smell of oil to lubricate mechanisms, the dimensions of a silent machine, or strata of dust...
Integrating the tradition of spoken word and video-related tecnhology, I depart from the qualities of a space and I build images that open the space to other experiences, so that a space is not the place in which we are, but also that which has been, and that which could be.

Hi ha un terme en anglès, “mind reading,” que es refereix a la capacitat de discernir els pensaments d’altres a través de mitjans poc convencionals. Space reading hi té en comú l’interès per estar atenta a allò de l’espai que ve a trobar-me: un raig de llum que s’escola pel porticó, l’olor de l’oli per engreixar mecanismes, les dimensions d’una màquina en silenci, o els estrats de pols…. Amb space reading parteixo de l’atenció cap a qualitats de l’espai per a construir imatges que obrin l’espai a altres experiències, de manera que un espai no sigui només el lloc on ens trobem, sinó també allò que ha estat i allò que podria ser. Amb la col·laboració de Turre al disseny sonor.
