“Un Teknè” torments facebook as a post-futuristic gift, they are nothing but a combination of different artistic collapses, faced with my conceptual neurosis. Four brains in the search for an artistic object, in Greco-Roman influences, scenic conceptualismos and pieces of human life that are yet to decipher. The center replace the camera at real-time, indulged by no representation and demand as the climax of the event itself. We are all statues plagiarized’s own identity in the way. Un TEKNÈ, the longest one, this is not poetry, this is the search of poetry.
To what extent is that the place of the artist exist? To what extent is there really a place? I think the best way to find is to sit on top of things as old as him, to move me to the sound of the voice of someone who has discovered his wall, his dam, its cabin. I think the best way is even undo me into 7 pieces and see if they flash as the flash of the new I-Phones when they receive a message.
