Artista Plástico

A couple of years ago by mistake I formatted the external disk that kept the «memory» with my ten-year work; six hundred gigabytes erased in a few minutes. It took me a long time to assume the loss and accept the risk of digital storage. As a research process, I reconfigure the rescued digitally and intervene with various archives to create another narrative. The new photographs, come alive embodied in a Failed Image type «Frankenstein» from which sprouts a beauty in full digital boil. What Fontcuberta now calls «post photography.» In this series we can see the entrails of the pixel taken to its end.
