Das Kapital


 


The Capital - Scene. To reconstruct the 3D coordinates of
the 2D points that are tracked to temporary autonomous zones.
Wireframe? Quickshade? Realistic? Segment Memory in limited region. Surface without control, points or handles.
Commands less destructiv. Big brains in the selection and elimination. Vegetables-loops, bio- centrifugal architectures.

"Marcello Mercado’s Capital is neither a finished product nor artware. His Capital is a work-in-progress. It will not be finished until the artist no longer believes in it or when he has given up its given up on its spirit.. Capital is an enterprise. In the sense of its purpose as a work, it has to fail constantly. It exists in a process of permanent re-writing, renewing, self-interpretation. At this level of excess and longevity, that is only feasible with electronic and digital machines. The wastage of material would be endless, if Mercado were to work exclusively in analogue. His factory fits on a table. In the beginning, he still needed hefty machines from Silicon Graphics, which only the laboratories of well-endowed institutions could afford. In recent years, he could deploy and create his bodily economy as that of imagery from off his lap. In this way, Capital recounts the story of digital image-processing over the last ten years too, and how an artist has reacted to it. Marx would have said, with his work Mercado would be expressing the status of the productive forces quite excellently. The artist would be functioning as a seismograph for the state of things."

"Las diversas tecnologías con las que dialoga el video han variado su determinismo en el predominio absoluto del computador, en cuanto a las maneras en que la máquina audiovisual infiere, y predice, los textos que produce. Tenemos su manifiesto en Das Kapital, de Marcello Mercado, la obra que marca un punto de inflexión en la presencia del ordenador como máquina video, reemplazando incluso cualquier registro proveniente de cualquier aparato de visión. La obra de Marx es redimida en su esencia por el proceso de datos y los procesos de una simulación textual alfabética convertida en pureza matemática en un discurso audiovisual numérico sobre el mundo y la economía política."
