BACK AND FORTH

Back And Forth is a visual proposal on time and memory and the way they relate with an accelerated world; it is about a slow but substantial change of temporality that takes place in our lives, moving through a complex path of phenomena events, such as technological shift, mass media, consumer habits and global translation.

This is a fragmented taxonomic compilation gathered from different sources, executed from screenshots that have been photographed with film. Memory is intended to be preserved through images as remembrances sheltered on virtual storage devices -which is why the image has been taken from the screen and edited on digital media-. It is implied in its content and substance which raises questions about incidents, visuality, memory, its displacement and post-production as well as the final connection between the subject and the reality that surrounds him.
