About this print
It is one of the images that emerged from Caminantes de Sloane, a series linked to my discovery of animation. About the Caminantes de Sloane series The day I found that only eight looped drawings were enough to create the illusion of the human step, I fell for that magic. From there and for a while, I couldn’t stop making gifs of different people walking endlessly. Then I aspired to a little more and dared with a choral scene. For this I based myself on a moment in the middle of the London rush hour in which three very different women cross their paths. Here things got a bit complicated. Eight or 24 pictures were no longer enough: 80 were needed. And all this to obtain Caminantes de Sloane, a motion picture that was fine…but lasted only seven seconds. When I had recovered a bit from this disappointment, I discovered excited that the piece had nevertheless left me a surprise gift: a lot of frames waiting for me to start a new game. I dedicated myself to superimposing, framing and combining them digitally and from there a new work emerged, now static. This is how the gouache drawings, originally intended to be just frames, ended up forming the various compositions in this series of giclées.
