Isabel Rosemblatt Bono
Chilean emerging artist Isabel Rosemblatt comes to ´ace with a proposal that investigates the interpersonal connections of social networks as well as seeks interaction with viewers. In the three weeks of her residency, Isabel toured the city making posts on Twitter. The artist’s tweets (short thoughts expressed in 140 characters) become quasi haikus in her aesthetic discourse (with deep poetic and reflective content on the daily life of the city of Buenos Aires), in reflections of flaneur and philosopher at the same time, that -although written- awaken us an infinity of visual images.
The project that I want to carry out during the residency entitled Interrupted Poetry seeks to occupy the medium of social networks to bring art to the ordinary user, who can access from anywhere with an Internet connection to be part of the work and at the same time bring social networks to the art space, inviting the viewer who comes to the gallery to take the work with them.
My intention is to be able to direct this project to an extreme with the residence to be able to spend all day writing and looking for stories and images of the place to be able to describe them poetically. I would like to have the time to observe myself around, to be able to feel it, to observe people and their interactions with their environment and with others. It seems to me that today and with the speed at which everything moves, the taste for simple observation and in turn for reading has been largely lost.
I also seek in my work that the works can in a certain way interact with the viewer, in this case the viewer will be able to interact with the site that is shown where the live twitter texts appear, allowing them to access previous texts or being able to update what is reading. This also highlights the instantaneous nature of the networks in which the user can read while I am writing and moving around the city, being able to follow the route I take in a certain way.
