|At the rhythm we live in, our society and community leads us into assumptions that everything surrounding us is temporary. The work exhibited is a reflection on this discard culture and it's entire irreflected or often prejudiced perception on people and objects alike.|
Using as canvas the cardboard, an object easily discardable once it's usability has been reached, Marco Moura illustates in this installation 4 pieces of feminine models following a new urban tribes motive, the cult of the anti-barbie aesthetics, subverted pin-up. Going against the cult of the unattainable beauty typically portraited by fashion magazines.
Enhancing these illustrations by Marco Moura is a projection system developed by Victor Martins and Filipe Cruz. The projection reacting to sensors gives a new life and subversion motif to the illustrations.
