«GRAVITY 0»

Monday, December 11, from 19:00 p.m. to 21:00 p.m. 

The 0 Gravity methodology is based on operating university spaces with small alterations or making implants in the body from within. These interventions not only propose dissections of our relationship with spaces, but also openings through which to see the outside. This perspective requires projects that do not consolidate the organism's own spatial encounters and that can activate architectural or minute points, from light to the edge of a glass.

Gravity 0 seeks proposals of resonance on any space in the building to implement aesthetic experiences. The projects must be designed for specific spaces of TAI, will be directed from the laboratory and will be able to mutate.

She has been part of collaborative projects such as Zahera / Cuenca or Rampa, also developing activities in cultural and curatorial management.
