About The stone of madness

The stone of madness by Lola Zoido and the students TAI It is a work that reflects on the influence of technological advances on our understanding of the world and the search for truth in a context in which the real and the imaginary blur.

This installation is inspired by the works of Hieronymus Hieronymus and Benjamin Labatut on the "stone of madness", a metaphorical object that represents that which does not allow us to see reality clearly and must be removed. 


The stone of madness


"For this workshop, we propose not to extract those stones, which could well be our mobile devices, but rather to polish them, carve them and play at adding one more layer to that new reality that we can only see through screens" Lola Zoido
