Key, Washer, Coin
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 15'0'' | Argentine | 2018
“Key, washer, coin” is a video piece that combines techniques from the reenactment, animation, music, and other fields to ruminates towards language and capitalist exchange. The formal and semantic languages of advertisements are dissected, breaking the marketing model down to its component parts, highlighting the complex capitalist infrastructure that fuels our economic reality. Advertisement shorts, graphic design pieces, marketing texts are rarely mistaken for art. That is due to a congenital wound: those forms cannot cover up their commercial nature, the evident and immediate presence of the money. The invisible hand of these disciplines is the labor of scientists, formal semantic researchers, cryptographers and engineers. By learning from these disciplines is it possible to create an original flowchart of resources; simultaneously critical, persuasive and disillusioning outcomes/pieces are expected.
