Title: Sticker, 2007, 7’26”, Sound Color
Sticker is a video that visually communicate the conflict between a figure and a background. This figurewants to be part of the background becoming like a picture card, glued onto its album.The dressing and the mimesis give the illusion that the solid figure could transform into image until when, slowly like a slow-motion soccer scene, it detaches itself from the background. Leaving in place its white silhouette, falling on the ground and then keep trying to adhere to the background. Sticker calls the audience to take cognizance of an obtuse determination.
