Scopic drive

Based on a hybridization of genders and languages.

an operator -which is both a spectator looking glances-, proposes a series of questions. The work isn’t intended to document the panopticon of the twenty-thousand pictures -all the same and all different- that are taken daily in the proposed place, nor to illustrate the questions that are outlined regarding the media theory. The attempt is to distinguish the alienated drive [that way of looking imposed by the visual culture associated to consumerism] and desire to gaze [another way of seeing]. A reaction against excess of images.
