"Things duplicate themselves in Tlön; they also tend to grow vague or ‘sketchy,’ and to lose detail when they begin to be forgotten. The classic example is the doorway that continued to exist so long as a certain beggar frequented it, but which was lost to sight when he died. Sometimes a few birds, a horse, have saved the ruins of an amphitheater."
(Jorge Luis Borges, "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius")
This video has as point of departure the exploration of the concepts of memory, image and space supported in tale "Thlon, Uqbar and Urbis Tertius" by Jorge Luis Borges and in "The Poetics of Space" by Gaston Bachelard. It is approached the concept of how the existence of something depends on the needs and memories of someone and as the image of a space depends on the people that keep it in their memory. The images do not exist alone, are not only on a canvas, wall, or screen, nor only in the head.
By associating the ideas of Bachelard with the psychology of Carl Jung I found common ground with the surrealist aesthetic, and by using Andre Breton's surrealist manifesto I understood that the psychic automatism and the automatic writing would be an added value for me to reach the final object that would reflect the theoretical concepts studied.
So this video is a reflection of a series of daydreams and meanings attributed to this escritoire, which in itself contains the most diverse parts of stories, memories and secrets.
