The project has to do with the construction of the landscape, considering this as cultural development, intentional, critical, but always unfinished, as is any society in its construction process.
I am talking about a society that reinvents itself, which in this globalized world is evolving from having a marginal role in the immediate past to playing a leading role worldwide. Many analyzes indicate that in a decade India will occupy the second place in the world rankings, after China, and could even be the first, ahead of the United States. That would mean a change in global geopolitics of proportions hitherto unknown.
In this work, my search focuses on the traces and symbols that speak of that potential for the future and also of its origins (without renouncing the use of its more traditional resources, bamboo, for example) as instruments to build the future.
Metal structures in the construction of large skyscrapers in South Asia. Remains of consumer society archeology on billboards without ads that talk about technology, avant-garde, urban renewal, obsolescence, volatile marketing, the future to be done.
The knots (links, ties) are very symbolic to reflect the diversity of a society with many languages, ethnicities, religions, cultures, ... and all of them build the global framework of a country that is rapidly renewing. This has shown different knots used to build scaffolding, stands for parades, etc. The works "Just a link" and "One_Junction" individualize knots as isolated pieces. The value of the individual and the strength of the union.
I am interested in inquiring about the structures that support the "social building" as images loaded with meanings. Bamboo scaffolds talk about history, own resources, ductility, resistance, roots and a link between past and future.
With the fieldwork that I have done in India, what I intend is to talk about the landscape. Question it as something definite, static, ideologically neutral. And show that the intention of each look, "builds" the landscape and with it, situations and circumstances that make lines of analysis that were there but to which we had not applied a critical thought emerge. That is to say, the images have an enormous potential of meanings, they are a semantic bomb, and therefore “an unfinished landscape”, complex, in a world in a permanent state of change.
