Catálogo Urbano | Francisco Estarellas

 

This series of images were collected my everyday walks. It is through the abstraction of the different fragments and memories of the city that I was making up an urban archeology in which I could establish an “arbitrary, subjective taxonomy”. A catalog is a list in which a series of objects are grouped and ordered according to a certain type of criterion or relationship. This agglutinating criterion was in my case the action of filing the pieces of my own deconstructive repertoire of the city.

This series of images were collected my everyday walks. It is through the abstraction of the different fragments and memories of the city that I was making up an urban archeology in which I could establish an “arbitrary, subjective taxonomy”. A catalog is a list in which a series of objects are grouped and ordered according to a certain type of criterion or relationship.  This agglutinating criterion was in my case the action of filing the pieces of my own deconstructive repertoire of the city.

It is in its same nomination (literal) where I find the possibility of mounting a new iconological sense about these objects/architectures, by means of a classifying objectivity, as if it were the manual of a gaze, of an attention. Marked by its passage to imprinting in negative by means of blueprint, these fragments are negated in their habitual meaning and transported to a space that places them in a tension between their memory and the design of this antique technique of copying of architectural drawings. It is in this vacuum where something ghostly might appear, something provisional might emerge. The graphic production of this issue was completely developed in an artisanal manner: Both the imprinting system through blueprint (photographic technique by emulsion) the mounting of the workshop with the construction of the platemakers and the paper cuts; as the projection of the productive times, their binding and imprinting of the covers; generating in this way a co-operative process and global of the work. Each issue has an additional technical information manual about the production process.
