Installations

we decide

by SUSANA BLAS

WE DECIDE (2009) is a device formed by forty strips, each one made up of thirteen laminated cards, which are surrounded by twenty DIN-A4-sized mirrors. In these mirrors, there are a number of sentences that give back to us our own reflection, as if it were a magic oracle; in fact, each sentence makes us reflect on a certain aspect of our life and social coexistence. The thesis of this project would be to denounce the labelling and uniformity which are hidden under false possibilities of originality and election, set to us by politics and education, according to their interest in controlling every single tendency that breaks the rule.

“We Decide” is an installation formed by forty strips made out of laminated cards, size 10 x 7 cm. Each strip contains thirteen cards, which are the result of a process that consists of photography, printing and careful cutting out of every single detail of the human figure.
At the back, there is an image, press cutting or bar code, symbol of the catalogation to which all human beings have been addressed to, after the phenomenon of globalisation. A forced classification which makes the person escape from taking his/her own decisions, in favour of the ones that the external world takes for him/her. The strips are surrounded by twenty mirrors.
There are sentences printed on each mirror to call for the visitor’s attention and make him reflect on some crucial topics such as time going by, and the fact of taking our own decisions about our life, with the aim of achieving the future that we really wish.
