Description
In a darkened gallery, images from four computers are projected onto the four walls. One is a projection of a series of computer screens showing the translation of a text that describes the symbolism of the whale in art and literature. The text is translated from Spanish to English and through twenty-two more languages until the “Babel Fish” Internet translator breaks down. Images transmitted live from webcams in the homes and studios of Luis Gómez’s friends throughout the world are projected on the other three walls. The individuals participating in this project will change over the course of the exhibition, but will never include the artist.
