Las Guerras Panasonicas [The Panasonic War]
Cardboard, wood, glue
With inspiration from the analog radio of the 80’s, this large-scale sculpture is a totem and an anthem for the music and the culture that emerged in African-American ghettos across the USA. This artwork encapsulates symbols like break dance, violence, cocaine, adventure, music and gangs.
My work revolves around music, sounds, urban trends and technological archaeology. I work with multiple disciplines to create sculptures, photographs, videos, objects and installations, taking urban references to develop a work based on appropriation. I am influenced by music, trends, dance floors, radio broadcasting, outdated technology, tape covers, LP´s and stereos from the 80’s.
By investigating analog technology, I create visual artworks that contain sociological interpretations of the development of music culture. Over the past few years, I studied home-made mixtapes and tape covers that illustrate different types of personal music libraries.
