The main objective is to develop a research on the concept of dystopia and on the ideas of dispersion, speed and progress that lead us through history to conquest and barbarism. Stardust, as the titleindicates, is composed of dust of stars, in this sense, the project begins with the ensemble of a set of pieces titled Cosmic sediments, each of these pieces is a wall fragment, formed by tens of layers of painting, belonging to graffiti. From these fragments I playing ideas about the ruin andthe nostalgia in the romantic landscape with those of spatial colonization, giving rise to a set of pieces titled Lunar landscapes. As Victor Hugo described the lunar mountains, from the cosmic landscapes shown below is intended to introduce the viewer into an active contemplation of the heaven. In the image Woman holding the Moon, the main character appearsin possession of the symbolic atmosphere characteristic of the landscapes of C. D. Friedrich. In addition, if Jules Verne narrated his adventures around the Moon, in the audiovisual piece From the Moon to the Earth, a satire is developed on the idea of a possible independence of the Moon on the Earth. To work from scrap, from traces found in the urban space, will be used, by using them as indexes, to undertake several interstellar explorations, carrying out an archeology of the everyday that stands against the modern time of utility and production. I link painting, photography, action and fiction using irony as a technique to tell a story about the possibility of escaping from our planet.
