Paciencia infinita | bRijUNi

La sociedad contemporánea se compone de modernos esclavos con amo de diseño personalizado y forma analógica o digital de pulsera. Segmentos aparentemente infinitos de tiempo lineal se suceden en nuestra rutina diaria de forma tangente al tiempo circular de la vida (nacimiento-muerte) sólo interrumpidos por breves períodos de tiempo simultáneo (vacaciones) en los que dejamos que la naturaleza y nuestros […]

El tiempo del lobo | Antonio S. Río Vázquez

“Vivimos en un mundo crepuscular, pero tan brillante y poético que llega a confundirse con una nueva aurora. Sin embargo, la aceleración de las comunicaciones, las múltiples conexiones en red, la circulación incesante de personas, de mercancías y de información escapan a todo control”. Paul Virilio Existe en la mitología del norte de Europa un concepto denominado el tiempo del […]

La extinción de los cuerpos | Pedro Hernández

Apuntes sobre la posible trasformación del espacio y lo sensible en un capitalismo acelerado. Acelerar En La durée poignardée, René Magritte nos ofrece un paisaje surrealista en el que una locomotora emerge del salón de una casa burguesa a través de la chimenea. Sobre ella destaca otro elemento: un reloj. El diálogo entre ambos se establece, además, en que el círculo […]

Architectures on the border and border | Luis Gil

If the edge, as a boundary or border, can only be approached by force (energy in a pure state without cultivating) or the strategy attached to its concretion, the technique (the invention that allows acting to deceive adversity), history architectures gestated at the border it has also materialized in a double formalization. In this way, the border and border space […]

The border of contact, encounter and exchange space | Luis Gil

The intrinsic nature of the border is that of being an area of danger, an insecure space in which the development of the essential tasks of life requires a state of continuous alertness. It is the space for the exchange of energy, where it is released or integrated into new areas, which implies a constant rebalancing of the forces acting […]

The plan as a tool for border overflow | Luis Gil

The border as a tense space that opposes its transit, requires effort, determination, formal or fundamental change to be transgressed and overcome or inhabited temporarily or continuously. Thus, the passage through the border or the limit, the jump from one medium to another implies the discovery of a technique that makes possible the survival in the other margin, the change, […]

The border, artificial and invented mechanism | Luis Gil

In this way when the natural barrier (the geographical accident) artificially used to protect the interior ecosystem, is insufficient, inadequate or non-existent for the desired economic or social use, then man develops not only artificiality over the natural but also takes a step more and build an ex-novo border. It is an invention that saves the natural deficiency, and around […]

Limits, nature and artifice | Luis Gil

When talking about limit or border, the words of bankruptcy or separation are instantly added to the conversation. A first approach to the definition of boundary or border spaces, would limit them as those areas of emptiness or obstacle that are shaped or structured as a nature that is little or not practicable, in which the movement slows down or […]

Mastery as a fundamental and physical problem of boundary and border phenomena | Luis Gil

The movement and walking is innate to the activity of man, for various reasons, from the great migrations and movements in the search for Paleolithic hunting to the present day. A movement that was originally forced by the need to survive against the adverse nature, much earlier than the subsequent sedentary and articulation of man with the territory through the […]

Allegory of the border and the limit | Luis Gil

The neoliberal actuality that we have had to live makes it difficult, like no other, to refer behaviors, events and attitudes to a stable horizon, a concrete framework that serves as an articulator, as an element of dialogue and background to the analysis of a hardly acotable contemporaneity, nothing defined and a rapid emptying of contents, whose ultimate goal seems […]

On 1 November 1755 an earthquake destroyed the city of Lisbon. Its impact was such that it displaced man from the center of creation. Its ruins legitimized Enlightened Despotism. Lisbon today is trembling again, shaken by a tourist earthquake that transforms the city at cruising speed. Its impact displaces the inhabitant of the center of the city. What new absolutisms will […]

The hyper-time city.The Falling Man | Miquel Lacasta

This image represents another jump to the emptiness. It is not necessary to explain the moment in which the photography was taken. The photographer of Associated Press, Richard Drew was, as different many, covering the event, according to the journalistic slang. The image is so brutal that the mere informative fact comes out. In fact the this qualified image, as […]
