A constructed being and the memory of everyday – almost banal – situations translate the central focus of this work: a space of time “between” memory and the constructed being reflects a series of situations. The being has his image split in two projections: figure and background, each from one projector. Front and back projections come together to produce a single image. These images are treated previously for the two projections to become one. The body of the being is a kind of body-screen – a place where images are processed, a place of project or memory. The criticism through negation is seen in this proposal that is a non-script, non-narrative, and non-character (the being has no persona or psyche, perhaps no face). Images appear and disappear, become sharper and fade. The work proposes an attitude, a posture that takes to the path of disturbance and estrangement. Images are processed, forming a dilation of temporalities, a shuttling between imprecise fragments of time, a hiatus, the “quasi”, the boundary condition of things situated between being and memory, a fragment of time.
