Survival of the fittest (2011)


Re-working the real, uncovering hidden universes, I try to evoke figments of thoughts and/or memories by providing a variety of points of perception within a single image.

Places to visit, where one can find multiple points of experience that exist at the fulcrum of the moment, or in many simultaneous moments.

These photos are not as much maps, as they are pools which hopefully provide depths of interpretation.

In conclusion, I try to make each image as if it is captured from within a momentary flux of images, as if nothing were solid or permanent. Instead, it is ephemeral, reflecting the ever changing nature of life and the way we experience it. Roger Guetta

y sin embargo #29 :: last/s issue




If communication means to put something in common, is it possible, today, at the height of the era of communication, putting something in common? Or all we got are monologues?

This issue marks the 7th anniversary of the Barcelona based independent arts/culture magazine Y SIN EMBARGO and it is the last issue of their 4 seasonal publications cycle.

“Seven years of a periodical and independent publication is perhaps both necessary and a long enough time to verify or put into practice a set of ideas, wishes and adventures. YSE closes a cycle, but doesn’t close (neither literally nor metaforically).

New situations, new circumstances and, most of all, new wishes and interests consume and demand the always limited well of time and energy. We have grown in this seven years without any kind of sponsoring, there was never a financial support or even modest underpinnings to give any logic of survival to the publication. Everything has been done on breathhold, in a respiratory exercise, at times painful, even if oxygen (of course intangible) always managed to be there in the end. Nevertheless, these are times of generalised asphyxia and sometimes – even though nostalgia or stubbornness exert their seduction- it is necessary to dry the boat’s dock, caulk and face different courses. We will go on, but we will be other.

Thanks to all those who have been reading and watching and those who took part. You’ll be hearing from us.” fernandoprats, art director and the founder of Y SIN EMBARGO.

hiroaki umeda :: holistic strata : media-dance performance



In addition to the characteristic elements of light and sound in his previous works, Hiroaki Umeda’s new piece Holistic Strata introduces a new system built around a key component of ‘physical data’ generated by the dancer’s body movements.

A further leap forward from Umeda’s tried and tested concept of treating light, sound and the human body as equivalent means of expression on stage, Holistic Strata revolves around the body as a complex cluster of information that configures actual spaces. Umeda’s body data (movements of muscles and locomotion coordinates) is manipulated with the help of sensing technology and results in the creation of a scenery that integrates dance, sound, and intensely blinking light. Based on this system of freely generated imagination, Holistic Strata proposes ‘dance’ as a spatial expression, while highlighting the criticality of our perception.

johan rijpma :: tegels




The hidden movements and melodies of street tiles.

Tiles is an animation made of a large photographic collection of street tiles. By viewing this collection of photographs as a sequence, different movements and processes become visible within the frame of the tiles. Both music and animation are trying to find a balance between a thought-out arrangement and an arrangement of ‘chance’ deriving directly from the tiles.
