The western hour
Sèrie of 6 drawings
Color pencirls on cotton paper
The working time, the process of the machines, the time on which the contemporary subject has perceived any type of experience or possibility, is the accelerated time of the experience of modernitat. The rhythm of life that the subject understands es a "work rhythm", has been internalized in such a way that it has become the time of the production chain.
A time less and less ours, a simple time, Succession and accelerated repetition of ourselves.
In a way, it could be said that modernitat restored a unique time of production and technology a time based on continuity and speed. That is, the rhythm of production eliminates everything that does not "serve" that can not "sell" or "prevents" from continuing to produeix: Affections, emotions, desires, everything that can not be marketed.

Each drawing represents a geometric abstraction, Composed of different colors that responia to actions and movements, where the dimensió of time is a weapon of resistance to the established time, to the hegemonic regimes of temporality, Resisting time through the introduction of a other times
