9/6 Fragmentos de Mr. James (1999)
The device consists of 6 interactive terminals in a set of 9 monitors. It is based on "A Reprodução Interdita (Retrato de Edward James)", a work by René Magritte (1937).
Each one of the elements that form the work were isolated and reconstructed so that they "shatter" when the viewer touches them. The isolated elements can also be composed individualy in the environment, allowing other compositions, showing through the hidden parts.
The interactions combine themselves in a chain of possible paths of fragmentation and revelation, shared by the participants until they are faced with the image of the empty room, in front of a mirror with no reflections.
Presented in "Imaterials" exhibition - Instituto Itaú Cultural (Aug-Oct 1999).
