Darth Vader (2014)
Monitor on pedestal with video loop and stereo sound
Before the artificial satellites turned their lenses on earth, the first images they captured were of a natural satellite, the moon, another celestial body. In this totemic sculpture, technical images or long scans from the first mapping of the moon are rhythmically descending the screen in the form of a video. The video focuses on the malfunctions, dirt and errors manifested on the film, which resemble organic forms. The soundtrack of the video is composed by bodily sounds recorded inside the body inspired by the practice of self-tracking. This piece functions as a mirror and reflects how our image is being distorted thru technology.
