Prepared Screen (2012)

The devices used to display moving images have transcended the home environment to massively occupy public space. The Prepared Screen series was started in 2012 from the the interest in the growing influence of technology on our actions, emotions and forms of collective organization. Between painting, photography, video and objects, the works in this series navigate between low and high technology to question the status of the image as well as explore the impact of cybernetics on contemporary human experience and the digital biopolitical structures that surround it at a time marked by continuous crisis.

The set No Repair  resents an archeology of inappropriate disposal of broken cell phone screens. Like the displays used by repair shops in the Santa Efigênia region, in downtown São Paulo, this accumulation reveals a contrast between scarcity and abundance. Knowing that electronic printed circuits are made of rare minerals, No Repair discusses an ecological problem after an artistic gesture.
