Starting from a footage recorded in a busy urban environment, still frames are extracted and regularly overlaid into the video. The resulting hybrid image merges people’s positions according to different temporalities: each passer-by leaves the trace of his path as he joins the static silhouettes already left by the others. These improbable meetings materialize a timeless structure that progressively fills-up the available space: the image is transformed, denatured, and tends towards abstraction. Thus sculpted by time, the produced forms reveal the dialogue between humans and the architecture that channels their movement.

Contemporary artist living and working in Paris.
After a first autodidact artistic experience followed by studies in Art History and Contemporary Art and Photography, Pablo-Martín Córdoba structures his work around the notions of temporality and movement. Both the latent movement in the still image and the stillness constructed from motion define a homogeneous domain where the digital image becomes a plastic material. The expansion of the spatiotemporal domain is doubled of a medial questioning which implies a free exploration of digital technologies, its possibilities and its limits. In this context, and by means of photomontages, videos and installations, the artist proposes a particular vision of reality without excluding shifts towards fiction. His work has been exhibited in Europe, America and Asia.
