AMOR MUÑOZ (Centro Roberto Garza Sada, UdeM / Galería K2, MX)
Intervención N.3: La máquina artesanal de Tadao Ando / Solo Show
Creating a spatial intervention in some of the interiors of the Roberto Garza Sada Center for Art, Architecture and Design, which consists of coding the space by means of a series of binary wooden rods with different combinations in black and white, to generate a possible data of to be decoded by the public, thus creating an interactive piece through a data processing between work and public.
Coding no.3 refers to the work of Tadao Ando as an "artisanal machine", as a functional, changing and dynamic system, built in an artisanal way, understanding the artisan as materiality, substance and hand-made processes. Seeing the analogical character of this machine to inhabit, the encoded data comes from the discourses of William Morris, founder of the Arts and Crafts movement in nineteenth century England.
The project is a reflection on language, coding systems and memory, understanding the latter as a container of data. During the residency the artist created a binary graphic language, based on the language of computers (ones and zeros) to make a series of pieces that range from electronic textiles to spatial actions and interventions. These encodings contain messages that can be deciphered by visitors, creating a live data processing.
