Folded Plasma TV Screens is a series that has been formed from various research paths. One of them analyzes the means of production, reception and distribution of images in the contemporary sphere. The series arose from an investigation around the symbolic violence that is exerted on the witnesses of a conflict through the media. Notions such as ‘phantom subjectivity’ and the concept of operational image developed by the filmmaker Harun Farocki were key to the development of the work. The series addresses the inherent toxicity in the materials used for the production of media. The work implies perpetuating the gesture of altering the habitual routes of circulation of waste, displacing the complicit materials of the polluting economy of electronic waste, granting them another destination.

In the film the ashes are part of the body of a series of creatures.
