Defragmentation of supremacy within and without urban symbolism.
Hyper-realism and the abstract merge in a dynamic composition of elements, architecture, texture, velocity and action featuring the World Trade Center of NY.
ICON is born by the challenging symbolism of the Twin Towers in a hot summer afternoon June ’99, awaiting a cousin who worked in one. Their sheer omnipotence inspired the visual de-fragmentation of its value.The challenge thus, was one to transcend the physicality of power, to dissect status with each visual fragment in order to secure it, to make dominance both vulnerable and accessible.
I needed to chunk out the perception overload to attain a clear notion, parallel say to the inability to conceive a million billion trillion in cash, but capable of grasping the �80 000 a minute B.Gates can spend in 85 years.
The flow of ICON’s creation was a smooth and straightforward process. It felt as if it created itself most magically, from inclusion into the script of the feature film brewing at the time, shooting, edited as u see it in 2000, to the needless necessity for soundtrack adjustments which fitted to perfection and was added a few months later, ever spookily named the ‘fragmented icon’ by Jake Mandell.
Hence, originally created as a sequence within Crissalida’s first feature film and project, a SCI-FI odyssey, it always had an intentional independent life of its own, just as other sequences do for the future use within a parallel event that goes with the film.
After the historic catastrophe, opposed to profit from the horror, and in empathy towards the victims’ dear ones, I thought it best to let it rest a good while before presentation.
ICON was premiered in January this year 2004 at Caixa Galicia, within what developed into a chrome triptych installation, URBI ET ORBI.
