Object Oriented Composition

The work is organized from the overlapping of sound-visual elements in a composition that questions the dichotomy between subject and object. The face as a symbol of the identity and individuation of the subject functions here as a receiver of a number of random objects / information that overlap by transforming contours, identities, and identifications. Faced with a cumulative fusion, subject and object erase their meanings giving rise to an unnameable and unclassifiable hybrid. This metaphor is related to the mythological figure of the unicorn as an animal that transits in the space between the profane and the sacred, having in its horn the possibility of extending its body to magical spaces. The work started from the inspiration of Rebeca Horn's homonymous work and the relation between body and object as tension and extension of the gesture.
