Gracia by kachicache Gracia by kachicache
This is a footage of a video-instalation I presented as a school project, it consisted of a projection on a bed of a person laying on his bed as if he were about to die, he is praying, and you can actually listen to him, I tried to use the audio that comes out of his mouth as a bait to attract the espectator to get close to the instalation, but underneath the bed there was a little piece of rotten meat so the exhibition room had a rotten odor. I would like to read your critiques about this piece, or if you have any doubts, those are welcome too! but mainly I need some of your critiques and opions as a school assignment, thank you very much for your help!

I will add a link to a youtube video later on!
Very strong and breath taking image, for a bare moment you don't understand that its a projection on the bed, you just notice something is off.
Lightning and all atmosphere, also people standing near the bed, gives moment a touch of sacred. Playing prayer would double to the image, as you cant see a real body, however you can hear the you start to think of ghosts, lost souls and two judgmental figures waiting you to die.

over all, Garcia is very strong piece, i would like to see in live performance. I`m sure its has stunning effects on one mind.

Una manera bastante interesante de utilizar los medios digitales para expresar un concepto. Por la calidad del video no pude entender lo que se decia.
Fue bastante creativo el como cortaste algunas partes del cuerpo para simular que ahi pasaba la tela encima del cuerpo. Sin embargo hay algunas zonas donde se deforma un poco la imagen por lo mismo de que es proyeccion.
Me gustaria saber si hay un transfondo de este concepto a parte de la agonia del hombre. Sin embargo esto no obstaculiza el concept en si, como dice la frase 'menos es mas' Incluso sin el audio y solo con la proyeccion y el olor el publico estaria interesado en indagar el proyecto.
Concepto bastante creativo, ya que sin decir mucho y utilizando los sentidos como el oido, la vista e incluso el olfato, ayuda a crear una atmosfera, donde el espectador ayuda a crear un concepto sobre lo que tiene en frente suyo, una forma de 'simulacion artificial' de algo tan natural como lo es la agonia y muerte de un ser humano. Bastante creativa la forma de utilizar los medios audiovisuales y digitales como nuevas tecnicas a utilizar como lo es en el arte contemporaneo.
