Sound Locators
2016
Series of drawings of machines whose main function was to locate sound, specifically for airspace. This technology, which developed from the First World War and the beginning of the Second WW of the 20th century, became obsolete very quickly due to the invention of radar. My interest in these images lies in the sculptural qualities of machines whose invention was aimed at the search for invisible artifacts of detectable presence due to their constant or ephemeral sound, so the focus of attention of these documentary images is outside the image itself.
