Don’t Think Twice
_ Metal and mirrors

Rio de Janeiro, September 2017
Don't think twice was presented at the group show Em Casa curated by Felipe Scovino at Lurixs' gallery.
The series “Measure of Dispersion” is comprised of sculptures and installations that aim to amplify andmanipulate the spectator’s field of vision through the useof blind spot mirrors and a modular metal structure. It uses ordinary materials that are combined in different ways to reconfigure the apprehension of one's surroundings, and change one's own sense of location.
Rather than capturing a specific moment like a camera, the mirrors reflect a fragmented body seen from uncontrollable angles and different points in space simultaneously. The resulting viewer experience is a challenge to the impulse to project preconceived assumptions onto what we see: we are made to test our sense of familiarity with our surroundings and, more importantly, with ourselves.
