Project based on an unlimited series of performative actions in which computers with a single digital file are buried. This file corresponds with the 3D model of a hard drive.
Once the computer is buried with this single document, the file is removed from any other device, remaining stored only underground, thus breaking the reproducibility of digital art.
With Rubén Tortosa, Miguel Sánchez and Nilo Casares.
The actions consist of the cerimonial preparation of the material to be buried, as well as the transfer of the file from one device to another. As if it were a ritual, the artists manipulate the files, and destroy the traces to make the buried file unique.
The work is available in performance and installation format with the documentary material of the actions and the recreation of the burials in the gallery.
3 printed hard drive models.
