"Nouvelle Science Vague Fiction," focuses on the relationship between construction and analysis of human ecologies. It takes science fiction to project a historical specificity in relation to technology and science and, at the same time as a device to create virtual or physical spaces, able to modify our conception of nature and training of our consciousness.
This raises as a syntactic space in which connections are made between analytic situations and scientific perception as objective knowledge (verisimilitude scales), non-experiencial learning derived from technological imaginary (estrangement and projection) and levels of configuration of ideal and critical conscience (new orientation forms)
In the first channel of the two channel video projection we find a stratigraphic tour around a cave depths and the surface of a lake that appears and disappears throughout the year, giving rise to a landscape that seems to respond to individuals unwritten laws. Besides the cave, a radio astronomy station in which take place the study of distant and invisible objects in the outer space.
This corresponds, although not synchronously, with a second channel that shows a file or repository of scientific images located in virtual recreations of the "Solaris" spacecraft.
This collage is head to the evidence that science should be a discourse among many others, can however, have a "real effect" produced like all other literary forms, getting impose universal belief in his fiction.
A voice located in a position of "super observer", guide by different ends of the world. With a remarkably objective tone leave of these apocalyptics prophecies to conclude with some irony about the role of spectator and the meaning of those events and images that will never be contemplated.
The original soundtrack was made of black hole deposits of sound from Dwingeloo Radio Telescope, Netherlands. The task of recording these sounds was thanks to the collaboration of Jonhatan Saldanha (Porto-Berlin), musician, cultural producer, curator and artist, with concerns similar to those proposed in this project. Together with scientists from CAMRA made the record sound black hole captured during the work session and later in his study of the composition Porto has made, using only these frequencies, for the soundtrack of the video.
We find in this disc as an hybrid object the faculty to condense visual and significantly, this unreachable region of space to any optical instrument. The running vinyl made the same move that makes a black hole in a process of mass destruction, making the sound wave radiation that scientists are able to capture through radio astronomy, to elucidate its physical qualities.
Subsequently there have taken some photographs of one of this discs surface with a scanning electron microscope from a 1000 times increase the actual size.The photographs resulting from enlargement reveal an uncertain landscape composed of ridges, summits, desert and arid areas similar than some space photography images of the moon or other planets.
