Stan Rehearsal - Ensaio para Plataforma de Lançamento, 2020

 

HD video, 4'52'', Color, Sound

 

Stan Rehearsal - Ensaio para Plataforma de Lançamento is a small speculative fiction film set on the day the first rocket is launched from the (to-be built) space port in the island of Santa Maria in the Azores archipelago. Taking advantage of the launching event as background, a young group of teenagers from São Miguel film each other dancing to Korean pop.

 

For Stan Rehearsal, the artist collaborated with four K-pop dancers from the Azorean island of São Miguel: Beatriz Viveiros, Maurício Lopes, Nicole Viveiros, and Sofia Rebelo, respectively.

A marine biologist is leading a project for the mapping of one of the deepest areas of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Her project depends on the controversial use of a developing biotechnology that works directly with a species of krill that inhabits at low depths.

Throughout months of observation and communication, the marine biologist develops a relationship of friendship and kin with the krill swarm, while observing their movements through the nano-cameras incorporated in their bodies -- slowly moving through the deeper zones of the Ocean.

As the end of her project approaches, the biologist is faced with questions regarding her relationship to the non-human and the systems that mediate their contact.

Mood Keep, 2018

 

Film installation at Looiersgracht60

Pink carpet, pink tungsten light

 

Mood Keep focuses on the critically endangered Mexican axolotl, a water creature with regenerative abilities that refuses to metamorphose into maturity. In the  lm, set in a near future, axolotls in captivity collectively decide to develop eyelids.

In charting the connections between the axolotl’s post-colonial history, unique - almost unearthly - biology, and recent online popularity as one of the world’s cutest creatures, the work seeks to trace the prevalence of cute imagery in contemporary semiotics.
