when i throw away data cd’s that i’m converting to dvd, i scratch their surface with a x-cutter, so that the data cannot be retreaved.
I noticed that the data layer particles released by this action fall slowly against the black background of the garbage bag.

Cais de Embarque, Teleférico de Guimarães
this was a site specific group show that took place in a cable car in Guimaraes, north Portugal.
This cable car connects people from the city center to the sanctuary of Penha on the top of a hill.
The Timetable piece was put on the bottom station near the ticket office.
It shows the arrivals and departures to many cities and diferent countries, as if all cable cars
(and funiculars) of the world were connected in a big net.
Every 3 minutes an advertisement shows the various destinations you can go for €1.70. ”
