Rocky, The Dog Assistant 2018 viideo pal 4:3, color, sound, 4’11’’
Rocky, The Dog Assistant is a re-creation of the Microsoft Office Assistant. In order to reflect on the objectification of virtual friends and their virtual communication, the user / tool relationship is presented in a contradictory dialect where the user ignores the purpose of the tool and gets lost in the possibilities of virtual experimentation. When Rocky utters the words "Erase me if you do not like me," the piece questions the user's own awareness of power over the assistant, as well as its permission to dictate that the user can extinguish it any time. Rocky The Dog Assistant seeks the collective memory of technology in a space where technology itself is questioned in its relationship with the human creator.
5860,58 km 2016 performance-instalation-video (hd, colour, no sound, 8'56'')
5860,58 km talks about a journey made by stones which were found and taken to another
country, as if migrating willingly. This displacement took place in five different european countries
during one month, jumping from country to country and city to city - completing a total of eight
exchanges. Via Google Earth, the video travels with the viewer going through the places where the
stones were found and repositioned, in a sort of digital collage and with the addition use of
photographs that capture the exact moment when the exposed stone was changed. The main focus of the action is the body, found in the object and the transport itself. The object and
the place that receives it suffer a transformation. In each place a stone is taken and then added.
The two forms come together. The memories merge from the place to the object, turning into
something new. The distance remains between the bodies and the places. The reception, the
solitude and the abandoned stay. The story of each stone is unknown before and after the act.
