Distorsión Jo soc allò prohibit

Design and multimedia creation

Jo soc allò prohibit

Isaki Lacuesta

Inauguration of the installation, Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona, 2019
Concert, Cineteca del Matadero, Madrid, 2021

The installation sets a cartography of “prohibition” in the democratic Spain. One by one, the viewers enters a cube where forbidden images are projected on a single wall. Thanks to the designed multimedia system, these images draw your eye on the opposite wall where they are projected. The installation’s soundtrack follows the path of the image too. The viewer has to face the experience of the forbidden image, and has to figure out how to find it.

The technical composition of the installation consists of four projectors and six synchronized loudspeakers, and a facial recognition system as well.

This project was awarded for the 5th Edition of the Video Creation Award of the Xarxa de Centres d’Arts Visuals de Catalunya, Arts Santa Mònica and LOOP Barcelona.

In the concert associated with this installation, Isaki Lacuesta plays with the forbidden images accompanied by the musician Raül Refree.
