This project was carried out as a master’s thesis in the Master’s program in Plastic Arts at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University in Bogota. Centrifugal Force is a one-hour performance in which two people interact by reading aloud and running. The reading is a poetic text written by me, which refers to my conception of artistic processes as cyclic forces that trigger one another. A person runs around the space during the time it takes to read the text, complementing with his action an experience of exhaustion produced by the creation of an idea.

“Beyond pretending to finalize a process of academic creation with a concrete conclusion, I have decided to propose this open space –understood at first as term– to address the uncertainty as an artistic problem.
Proposing the possibility to raise questions with the promise to preserve the potential of movement in the processes, made it clear to me that my interest is in the unsolved midway points and not in the concluding ends.”
