WORLD IMPRESSIONS /OPTIMISM OF TEXTURE

The four interventions have the theme of printing in common
(be it of patterns, texts or images) on different materials
(paper, fabric or plastic).
Rolls of such materials have been rotary manufactured throughout human history.
Patterns, phrases and information have been printed on them.
Bodies have been draped, objects wrapped, information transmitted by them.
These materials and the technologies that have transformed them both
partake of a system of strips flowing continually through space via a set of
rotating elements.

Our intervention will attempt to simultaneously combine printed motifs
belonging to totally different countries, ethnic groups and eras,
with a unique end result. By means of computer combination we can,
for instance, print a German news item in Chinese characters and
with a photocomposition inspired by the geometric designs
on Guatemalan fabrics;
a fabric with Aztec patterning with the arabesques and geometries of the
Cheyenne Indians.
These same geometries can be subjected to the logic
of fractal geometry, etc.

New printing systems - offset, serigraphy, laser printing, photocopying,
fax, heat printers, robot spray guns, scanners, etc -, aided and abetted
by computerization, permit us to recodify, combine and transmit messages,
designs and images belonging to totally different places and times.

The four interventions have a similar formalization but with
different combinations, in order for each to be identifiable while belonging
to the same family or group. What they all have in common is having a
structure that simulates WATERFALLS, FOUNTAINS, STREAMS OF FABRIC
which emanate from the ground or the air, like a DOWNPOUR or
JET OF IMAGES in continual movement.
