Real Pixels, 2020 (5)
Created on: Saturday, June 19, 2021
How will anthropogenic fossils look like in thousands of years? Plastiglomerates have been found in Hawaii in 2012, which begs the fossil question. Living on the Coast of Portugal, Inês displays this work on the topography of place, marked by the nylon threads of the fishing industries. In the context of our relationship with real issues such as the ocean pollution and the detachment of the populace through passive activism online, 'Real Pixels' juxtaposes these realities, by meshing the geology, the dimension of being pixel, locality and the plastic ocean problem into a group of sculptures that resemble the grid, which is an anthropocentric concept and tool.
