Atafona

filme documetário, 46 min

2014

Atafona é um filme sobre o homem e sua natureza. Bambu vive em um galpão abandonado no pontal de uma praia em constante revolução. Pacato balneário no litoral norte do Estado do Rio, Atafona é vítima de um impiedoso processo de erosão. Mais de duzentas construções foram engolidas pelo Oceano nas últimas décadas. Antigos veranistas guardam da praia, além de memórias da juventude, precioso material de arquivo. De suas casas só restaram ruínas pintadas com mensagens apocalípticas. Constante lembrança da morte ou esperança de renovação, a paisagem fugidia do balneário emoldura a jornada de Bambu para encontrar o seu próprio paraíso.

In this peaceful beach North of Rio de Janeiro, a merciless erosion process has swallowed over two hundred buildings by the seashore. An ephemeral landscape frames Bambu's journey in search of his own particular paradise.

Borges: The Complete Works/Obras Completas consists of a pair of word-searches – one in English and one in Spanish – each containing the entire literary output of Jorge Luis Borges. More than thirty thousand words in each language were encoded in boards 600 characters wide by 450 tall with the help of software written for this project. On going since December 1st, 2012, an online audience have been circling words from Borges's writings on the project's web-site, at borgeslibrary.com

Borges's stories tackle our ludicrous search for answers to the questions that have haunted humanity for millennia: the meaning of life, the matter of purpose, our origins and destiny. In The Library of Babel, an intangible Universe (the Library) is unfolded by the combination of only a few recognizable signs (the alphabet). The Argentine writer invites us to contemplate “the variation of the 23 letters”. In Borges: The Complete Works/Obras Completas, his entire fictional universe is self-contained in the rigidity of the grid; meanwhile, its enormity will illustrate the inevitable failure of exhausting all the possibilities.

Grande Terminal Central

instalação fotográfica

2011

Documentação da instalação Grand Central Terminal (Grande Terminal Central), painel com cerca de quatrocentas fotografias capturadas na icônica estação de trem de Nova York.

Com a câmera sobre o tripé, de um ponto fixo do mezanino, dividi a área do terminal em quadrantes, enfocando um pedaço de cada vez. Um assistente no salão abordava transeuntes aleatoriamente, pedindo que parassem por alguns instantes para posar para a câmera.

Diversas imagens de cada quadrante foram posteriormente impressas e justapostas nas paredes da galeria, reconstituindo o espaço visual do terminal – embora evidenciando o colapso de temporalidades.

Grand Central Terminal

photo installation

2011

Grand Central Terminal
was an installation juxtaposing hundreds of pictures taken at New York's landmark-terminal. Setting the camera on a tripod, from a single stand-point, I mapped the three-dimensional space and divided it into smaller areas, focusing on one square at a time. I had an assistant at the Terminal's floor, asking people to pose for the camera.


Later on I printed several pictures from each individual square and installed them on the walls to the overall effect of re-constituting the whole visual space of the Terminal – although in a ruptured, multi-layered fashion.

A Biblioteca de Babel

2010



No conto A Biblioteca de Babel (1944), Jorge Luis Borges vislumbra um acervo total: seus livros esgotam todas as combinações possíveis de letras em suas páginas. No universo imaginado pelo escritor, todas as possibilidades estão latentes.


Em A Biblioteca de Babel (2013), as palavras de Borges são desarticuladas, reduzidas a suas unidades essenciais: letras do alfabeto. Cada signo do texto original foi arranjado em uma grade, como em um gigantesco jogo de caça-palavras. Dependendo da distância com que é visualizado, o bloco de texto se converte em imagem.

The Library of Babel

2010



In the short-story The Library of Babel (1944), Jorge Luis Borges evokes the image of an intangible universe (the Library) unfolded by the permutation of only a few signs (the Alphabet). Borges’s archive is total: in its conceptual universe, all possibilities are latent.

In The Library of Babel (2013), words cease to stand for what they mean; they are disassembled into their basic units: letters of the alphabet. Every character in the story –including punctuation– was arranged on a grid, giving form to a gigantic word-search diagram. Depending on how far one stands from it, the block of text begins to read as an image.

Riocities

color, 100 p.

2012

Riocities (2011) comprises montages with photographs from Rio de Janeiro, both from my archives and from historic public collections and the web. These pictures document the accelerated process of transformations the city has been going through, aiming to host major international events in the near future. Against a backdrop of social inequality, huge investments are being made in order to rebrand Rio as “The Marvelous City”, image worn out throughout the last decades by an unconcealable escalade of urban conflict.
