With access to new communication technologies, our way of understanding ‘the trip’ has changed. The road, as a journey of discovery and exploration, has made way for the creation of artificial and interactive situations based on the simulacrum.
No Marked Path reflects, through the imagery of the popular culture ‘road movie’, on the present conflict between highway travel, technology and image. Starting from the idea that Frederic Jameson points out of ‘our inability to achieve aesthetic representations of our own current experience’, I’m interested in examining how concepts related to the mark left by man through technology, the screen as a catalyst for experiences, and the interrelation between map and territory are present in our environment and landscape.
Composed of six chapters that include photography, photosculpture, and installation, the work combines materials and media, fiction and reality, strategically displaying visual and material details to confront the device with the image for its questioning.
No Marked Path includes: Borgesian Map (6 expanded images), Territories (48 photographs), Conquests (6 photographs), Horizons (10 photographs), The Myth (3 photographs) and Travels (1 sculpture).
