About

STING employed art as a vehicle for change, using transversality (how spaces intersect) as a way of production, autonomy as a means for development, and cooperation as a substitute for the specialization model introduced by the centers of power. STING was a response to institutionally conditioned social processes that limit the organic development of society. From this perspective, ESMoA’s exhibition space was transformed into a platform for the development and visualization of strategies that reveal how we understand transversality within our individual artistic practices. Chaotic Ingredients. The art laboratory as a space to create: Alive with dynamic processes. Two parts rationality, two parts emotion from Cuba make up the four legs of this metaphorical discussion table. Paradox Disposition. “Simplicity” should be simple, yet we interpret everything around us by over-saturating natural processes with too much logic. The simplest things return to us as the most complex things: Two meters distance between two peoples is mediated for 40 network nodes. A possible solution for this problem became a problem itself: Communication among those organically understanding of a process is blurred by the complexity of the attempt to reach the simplicity. Start Exploration. Sting like a small but potent attention call. Analyze and digest social and cultural surroundings. Observe our selves through the eyes of others. See how common our social nature is by finding a cousin just next door. Use cross-field strategies; relate different backgrounds, sources of information and experiences from specific and global contexts. Every work becomes an example of an attempt to connect areas that grow more and more distant each day. There is communication among technology and human relations, death and aesthetic, scientific procedures and symbolical power.
