e-Xplo remains an enigma. 10 years of work and it is still not clear what it is, where it came from, and where it is going.
Our anchors have been noise / sound / music - and their relation to movement / image / time / space. The temporal inquiry brought us recurrently to the night (as time-space-logic of its own). It also has brought us to durational events, which implicate or immerse a person in a situation. And our spatial inquiries have lead us to various strategies of touring, or walking, of mapping. All of this circulating through our lives, desires and political engagements with the world.
e-Xplo develops maps,
routes, sound and film materials as reflections of a multifaceted investigation
into location, context, social identity, landscape, and the public space
Each work proposes distinct but related topics, thus focusing on specific
issues for concrete places while searching for broader insights.
