The Divided Line- Poetic action-

Chance must be systematically explored,
Already ten days of happiness

Sound: water drip

THE DIVIDED LINE refers to the divided line analogy in Plato's Republic, suggests another reading of Plato's 'different degrees of reality'. It is an installation located in the Cuevas of Nogalte, a new temporality is proposed. The cave becomes a marker of time in which the pace is established by the sound of water dripping. The visitor is immersed in this time mechanism, inside an alternative narrative that tell us about what it is absent or the potentiality for something to become absent. It is an open platform in process, in which the meaning is ambiguous and elusive, and the proposed material co-exists within that time frame in the viewer's imagination.
