Facundo Pires


Facundo Pires tells us about his work and its process;
"Some of my images consist in the photographic record of public space intervention, likely displayed on abandoned, torn apart places I would not see again (and hence I’ll miss any eventual public reception to it). Other times I work right away with broken printers, with their heads overloading ink in the reprinting of several images superimposed; random-work failed machinery standing as a counterpoint to the surgical perfection of digital devices. Intendedly I leave some photographs outdoors for several days, then I look back on them; the exposure of the materials to weather phenomena as time goes by in an uncontrolled environment challenges and my creation skill and thrills my ideas of control over my own production."
