Next Monday, 30th of March I will present ‘Corporeality: Art, technology and what is seemingly invisible’ at the sixth congress ‘Criadores Sobre outras Obras’ (CSO) (i.e. Creators about other art works), which will take place at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon.
This congress, CSO, is focused on the fact of sharing gazes and ways of creating by artists who are colleagues. It is about communicating a new and close artistic knowledge to an international forum promoting its discussion. In this sense, I found interesting to present in Lisbon the art work of María Castellanos Vicente , predoctoral researcher and artists from my university (UVIGO) who combines art and technology as pillars of study, being based on everyday details which are often unnoticed.
As an introduction, the abstract of the paper presented at the CSO Congress and subsequently published in the CROMA 6 journal in its July / December issue of 2015 (pages: 18 – 27):
‘Corpo-reality’ is a performance of the Spanish creator Maria Castellanos Vicente. Three key themes of her doctoral thesis converge in it: the study of perception (the human eye versus its machining version), sensory deprivation of human beings and the body-skin relation. Her wereable, transparent to infrared cameras, shows that artistic creation is research itself.
Keywords: art / technology / transversality / perception / skin.
