I want to be a cloud
"I want to be a cloud" is a project that arises from the need to understand and reflect about the current reality (Madrid, March-April 2020). This proposal has been developed bit by bit around ideas, thoughts, preoccupations and above all, it has been fed back from my dreams during those special days (and nights).
There was no creative strategy. Only the need to think, to do, to react, to express (myself) day by day.
See. Look. Watch.
Observe, experiment, think, understand, reflect, understand (and learn), accept (or not), confront, imagine, create.
First conceptual axis: space (really limited during these months)
It is practically limited between the walls of my room-bedroom-workshop. Investigating the limits and borders of the interior-exterior dipole, which could later be translated as private-public, artificial-natural. The line that separates these two worlds: the window (and if you are lucky) the balcony.
Second conceptual axis: time (ufff)
Everything is very relative. And especially the weather. Sensations and perceptions. slow-fast, short-long, limited-infinity. Wait, enjoy, pass, get bored, motivated, get bored, etc.
And finally the bridge between the two concepts:
movement (perhaps physically it has been the minimum)
At the beginning there was motivation and a desire to explore and take advantage of everything possible. And play.
Then everything becomes very small and slow. And my only way to escape has been through the imagination.
And here it all begins.
Dreams about what I would like to do or rather, About what I'd like to be.
