Keywords: Cosmos – Philosophy / Art Hospitallity / Raster /  Anthropocenepictorial technology / matter / imaginative radical humanism / speculative fiction / irrationality / experimental drawing / human error / the planetary super-computation.

Technical specifications of the Draws: Experimental drawings on paper. Installations.

Note: All drawings are made to be sent through the mail, most of the time in an official size, and to fit into the slot of the post box. So that, as they are made of paper, in many cases, folded and thus be presented.

Content considerations:

Here is defined the drawing asoperative function”. I conceive art as antenna to receive reality. Since my childhood I am working with experimental drawings and Raster to capture the essential nature of things. (Essence is a metaphysical today referred to the scholastic, but here it is used in the sense of the philosophicalmaterialism”, however, it intended to harmonize vectors found in the functioning of institutions. Perhaps trying to think, not a modern art, or a egotistical artist, but thinking about the common good). I do exercises with ‘tele-guided’ micro-objects that explore the silence and the dimensions of space and time from the viewpoint of contemporary aesthetics. The lines and points of a drawing is a journey through time and the adimensional crosslinked operations. A “proto-raster” what I create from what I perceive as human error, refers to a “pictorial technology”.

In the social aspect, as well as the literary aspect, the speculative fiction & “science fiction” allow for me many different solutions to problems, but sometimes “the essayistic speculation” often acts as servants of the totalizing discourses. On the one hand, the human being live in a “Climatic Unconscious“, what we call the Anthropocene period, it is the manifestation of a geo-social power, this question has raised in the role that the humans have in the Cosmos. The same “Supergentrification” as part of the projection of a Mapping, is presented as a control of “human behavior”, inventoried in supercomputers, “the planetary management”. On the other hand, the question of “the anthropic principle”, is the idea that the “Human” is a God and that is the center of the universe. O question is, it is critical to this classification. We are facing a kind of apocalyptic psychological reductionism that tries to explain the entire universe and the “mind”. Thus confronted with an Gnosticism.

As a response to this idea from the aesthetic sense, this has been given to call the “Art Hospitality”. In my work it is related to a critique to the “dialectical materialsm”, and propose other form of understand the “matter“. I celebrates the “Cosmos” philosophy (As it is understood by Boris Groys) and the “imaginative radical humanism” of an esoteric spirituality, which tries to find other emotional-structures, where reality tries to hide something irrational. With my currently Drawings in relation to the human error in “the planetary super computation”, to confront the ideal ofmanmachine” in the “posthumanism” and the technocracy. That image and text and the writings of art into drawings, can be a dispositive and a personal understanding of “the inner nature of things” or in other words, how the world works.
