Big Metal Thing.
“Big metal thing” is a project which aims to talk about creative interpretation, childhood memories and the perception of those in adulthood. This project brings together still images, personal archive and modeling. It is a project about electric pylons and what they represent to me. As a child, growing up at the edge of a big city, those pylons, those metal structure where everywhere in my environment. Big Metal thing is a project about the representation of unassimilated meanings. It is about translated childhood memories into visual content. It is a wider experience that focuses on the way people can deliver a story or a memory into creative work. It focuses on the concept of the “enigmatic signifier”, a theory from Jean Laplanche, who argues that we are attracted or drawn to certain elements in life because of our past experience with those elements. This is a work where we are trying to understand the human consciousness and its translation in our daily lives.
