The iconotopía is an invented term under which I have grouped a series of works that combine the boundary between what is represented and the physical object that supports the representation.
A hybrid between the iconic sign and the space it occupies, that which works as its support, the body; the result is a decrease or approach of that which in principle acts from a distance. This approach produces a tension which gives an internal rhythm to the photograph, a swing between two places and two temporalities.
The iconotopía activates a system of relations that points to a possible sensitive machine, a space folded upon itself to acquire a degree of awareness that restores its materiality simultaneously with its symbolic load, a sort of substitute for weight, a virtuality that has become physical, tangible.
