Description (in English)

Spaces of Failure (2014 - ) is a series of photographs and videos produced from the subversion of panoramic apps for smartphones. Instead of following the instructions to get a good image, I try to test the limits of the program, which ends up putting things in the wrong place.The images are not the result of effects or filters, but they emerge from the clash between the logic of the algorithms and the insurgency performed in the act of photographing. This poetic gesture takes place in the capture of the images and tries to deviate from the automated decisions of the program, modifying the axis of the camera and shifting the point of view during the shots. Even if this attitude maintains a defined intention and the program strives to reach its objectives, it is impossible to predict how the algorithm will stitch the images.
