Aspects

Taking the framework of written language as a reference, a normative model is created that orders movement, in the same way that syntax does in language, and movement is incorporated into it in the same way as vocabulary and semantics in language. The visual and sound context contribute to the creation of meaning, of which the spectator is an active part. Space constitutes the model, the norm, on which everything is ordered. Specifically, the geometric shape of the cube is the axis on which movement is created. This cube is rotated, enlarged, reduced, giving rise to an infinite number of variations that constitute the vocabulary of movement of the piece. The work contemplates the active role of the spectator as the author of the work, as it requires his participation as a creator of meanings.
