1 channel video-installation.

Madrid, 2012.

15 min loop.

This installation revolves around how we position ourselves in a territory, as the sky becomes territory through missions in space and open skies treaties, negotiating its poetic meaning as a space and its geopolitical implications.

The video is made up from skies of over 30 aviation, space conquest and war films. I have carefully chosen those scenes in which the sky has a predominant role, usually scenes of jet combats, introduction to flight, beginnings and endings. I have cut out the elements that were not sky through geometric shapes, keeping the original sound, negotiating different logics for creating a new narrative.

The video projection is silhouetted against the wall creating continuous negative / positive spaces. It creates an open reading, both narrative and special.
