M.A. (desejo) is an interactive installation which compounds a cylindrical fiber glass element of 2,70m diameter by 1,70m height, rounded by three masks and three stairs that take to the upper top where through three other masks the interior of this pink element can be partially seen: one video camera was put behind the spectator who then is taking a voyeur's position, and through the two holes of the other masks, two multimedia computers were disposed there to be navigated.
Inside we had a CD-ROM which compounds 9 written and sonorized poems, some passages are videos and an amount of scanarized images and/or produced for this purpose.
The starting image was an Polaroid of, a sailor looking at strip-girls' posters, found in a street of Paris. To this first image I added, searched, excavated other memories of trips and my childhood, which I spent in a portuary Brazilian city: an oblique look over our relations, voyeurism and desires.
