When something’s on a loop, how predictable can the unpredictable be?
LOOMLOOP is a 60 minute video, featuring 40 different people, from actors and dancers, to
everyday people, craftsmen, artists, friends, our parents. A mosaic of narratives, images and
patterns of human behavior. The characters of this installation are performing a number of
heterogeneous and diverse actions, sometimes totally unpredictable. This is the space where
rational and irrational coexist allowing new unexpected narratives to arise.
From the rock paintings of Lascaux in France to today’s graffiti, murals are the records of our
collective unconscious. Inspired by our everyday lives, LOOMLOOP is building a scenery
that weaves together multiple cinematic frames. Through visual, historical and mythical
references we create an archetypical map of human behavior, presented in a loop and
projected on the wall.
LOOMLOOP LAB is a workshop applicable to specific or generic groups, which are formed
by their unique characteristics, such as profession, gender, community and so forth.
Throughout the project we will interact with those groups and affiliate them with video art
and performative methods. The workshop’s purpose is to point out the peculiarities and the
uniqueness of each member of the group and familiarize contemporary art with them. The
personas of this installation perform a number of heterogeneous and diverse actions,
sometimes totally unpredictable.
The video of this collaboration is the result of the conjunction between people, different forms
of art and everyday life. At the end of the workshop, the final video will be presented for the
participants and the general public.
