STATEMENT:

This event called for one main installation to set before the big stage and also to do the scenario for a street play were different elements illustrate different moments of the action. My ideas was to develop a construction method with which I would solve the different requirements. This method consisted of using lines and chains to give shape to different ideas.

DESCRIPTION:

This installation consisted on a 10x10m surface lifted by ropes 4m from the ground were the audience of a small stage was located.

CONSTRUCTION:

Building a surface with chains and lines that use the chain link to define a specific drawing_ Lift above the ground _ Fill it with the remaining lines.
