Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock is a nerdy variant of Chinese Morra. The variation consists in the introduction of two new signs, “Lizard” and “Spock”, which increase the possible combinations in an attempt to decrease the draws. This choice stems from the assumption that two players who have known each other for sufficient time begin to develop mutual predictability and tend to draw frequently.
Just as the three artists know each other’s ways of researching and applying for their works, the introduction of possible variations within their own practice gives the opportunity to open up to new ways of experimenting.
The works, specially created for this occasion, were results and activators of dialogues; small subversions of the document categories and the spatial dimension.
The works presented enjoy transversality relative to the media and media used. They often switch from one support to another and from one language to another, always keeping what the idea/image is. These are actions of re-mediation on the image (representation/picture) and language.
The re-appropriation of the visual imagery coming from contemporary visual culture and language introduces that variant of meaning that works to redefine the initial image to return another. In an apparently playful (light) and ironic way, the project reflects on these possible practices and the questioning of the meaning of the image and the vision itself.
