Zaldi/Horse (How to Explain Interactivity to an Audience)

 

Toda interfaz es una estructura tecnológica estable capaz de sintonizar los cambios en un flujo de materia determinado, para luego ser volcados en una red de significados y acción. En nuestra tesitura, es guardar silencio para amplificar las cualidades de otros relatos. Entonces, ¿qué ocurre si no eres tú quien explica el sentido de las cosas, si no eres tú el centro, la coordenada, el punto de vista? ¿Qué somos entonces?… acaso especulación domesticada, ecos de inercias, motivos, temas, transmisores de ideas ni siquiera propias, engranajes de espectáculos ajenos…?

¿te resulta violento?

Ahora te dispones a escuchar, y ya no oyes.

Hablas, y esperas -en un rinconcito de tu alma- que te entienda

 

beuys

 

On 11 November 1965, J. Beuys walked, in the context of an art exhibition, with a dead hare in his arms, hugging and whispering to her. He called it How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare. His face was bathed in honey and gold dust, and a foot wrapped in felt dragged a copper plate over the floor. Everything was prepared to understand the potentialities and connectivities –both symbolic and physical- of that encounter like a shamanic and performative act; also as an arrangement of elements or data that would allow cross flow meanings and information. A whole combination of alchemical transits and thoughts…
We thought he was who explained the works of art -the meaning of art- to the dead hare. What we never knew, and now we speculate with this, is that he might be asking to the hare: please dear, could you explain it to me?.
