Realaciones Aleatorias entre mecanismos alados

Manuel Rodríguez Delgado

Opening July 15, 2012

3:00pm-6:00pm


CONCEPT


These objects “mobiles” were crafted as sort of homage to restlessness and movement, and were intended to be part a greater aleatory organism. This organism, composed of seven mobiles will serve as a metaphor for not only the flight of the imagination, but of the irreducible and unpredictable network of associations that language is able to produce thru signs, or in this case, artifacts.

It has taken me years to finally understand movement not as a state but as a constant, for nothing has ever been “still” in the vast system of centrifugal relations in which we exist. Perhaps, the only way to truly be still is to hover in an established axis, while the earth turns below my feet, and the atmosphere across my body, until I inevitably find myself in space, as the earth continues its orbit around the sun. Movement as I perceive it, is indeed poetry.
