|Gonzalo Mezza - Statement|
|Written down by Pat Binder and Gerhard Haupt, based on an interview with the artist.|
My proposal for this participatory cyberinstallation is for people throughout the world to make an intervention onto a sugar cube pyramid. That can happen through texts, images or sound sent via e-mail. The images will be received here and projected onto this pyramid made of 400 pieces of sugar (cubes) - for this reason w.w.w.c.u.b.a.c.u.b.o.s.i.n.f.r.o.n.t.e.r.a (means: Cuba - cube without borders).
The idea is to break through the island's isolation via a virtual bridge, and in this way I receive two or three images from different places everyday.
But unfortunately, the work remains merely a concept here, as we do not have the necessary technical conditions. For example, I could not get a video projector. For this reason I simplified it, because it is not the technology that is important but rather the idea.
However, the interventions that arrived during the Biennial will be shown later at a gallery in Chile so that in this way another bridge to Cuba will be created.
