UNCONSUMED AND MOVED

This is a project of visual research inspired by «leftovers, and waste of fast food. I wanted to use a public cultural reference, an empty and already consumed object not available to sell anymore. To this scenario, I engage the body, my body that will loses his identity and becomes a rejected article.

This rope position represents a building or a space that can be habitable. This space offers tree surfaces and in each of them the options of transition, depends of the ground. With this rope installation and highway sound effects, I wanted to recreate a house under, a sort of shelter that is common to find in big cities. For recreating this space I also got interested in hostile architecture, but this part still in work in progress.

Tightline for Rectangle


Placing a tightrope is dividing the space. I like to work with the concept of body in exposition and the fonction of the circus object into the space.

In this act the rope represents the middle, the line that divides right from left side. I wanted to make a rectangle with the public for making them and me have an interactive exposition where they’re also part of.

The act starts as well with a long indian file where I bring the public to the « representation space » and I make them build the border. Afterwards, I describe my travelings inside the rectangle for create a verbal trace until I arrive to the tightrope. Here, I change the focus is in my body finding the balance while I walk and change positions in the rope.
