Calle Libre

As a nod to concrete poetry, I erected a structure of words on a 10x6-meter wall. Using stencils, I iteratively inscribed the phrase "Positive society of constant comparison." Coined by the writer Byung Chul Han, this term reflects societal dynamics dominated by perpetual comparison and competition. The painted word repetitions symbolize the inundation of information, often hindering the distinction between the essential and the non-essential. Despite having a prior sketch, the procedural approach was crucial in building the structure. Repetition took precedence over absolute precision. Similar to the trance-like state of scrolling through numerous pieces of information, I painted one word stencil after another. The emphasis was on the continuous action, illustrating the dynamics of constant comparison.
