LOOK UP THE SKY. http://www.gabrielagolder.com/cielos
Since the beginning of the quarantine, March 2020, I
collect skies, my own skies, skies of friends from other cities in the world. We all
look at the sky.
What does the sky have to tell us? Using a neural network system with a long
short-term memory (LSTM) architecture of recurrent neural network (RNN) and a
convolutional neural network applied to mobile vision, the system of this work will
interpret videos of skies from different parts of the world, generating a dialogue
between skies and scientific and poetic texts. The skies say about colour theory,
perspective, about the atmosphere, about astronomy, about explorations and travels,
about meteorological phenomena, about ornithology, about geography, about looking at
the sky, about the sky being looked.

A women leaves her country. She tries to meet
vacant spaces, to forget paths. She's considering the new territory.
She's not stopping. A trip is more a seek than an adventure. The
decision to leave a country first comes from the will to break apart
of the family circle, with the blind old uses, and over all, the
will to get out from a cocoon, and take the way of self-modification.
Sequences are derogating, asking for answers, facing or not each
other. A quest or an escape, or simply 'to BE' Labyrinth, where
images goes back to the target, in the central node of it's performance
and it's hopeless thoughts: the nude, the nude flesh of life.
