NOPHOTO imagines a visual exercise to be executed in a faraway place. A determined team rolls in an adverse context full of obstacles and difficulties. Cyclist become then a projection of the members of the collective and their tour a metaphor on the nature of a collective creative experience.
The relationship between culture production and sport is specially appealing because it is subject to a great deal of preconceived ideas and opposing stereotypes. The image of a synchronized rolling pack, however, it is pretty similar to the formalization process of an idea in a collective way.
The EQUIPO structure represents another culture production approach. A project where the particular hallmark of the participants gets dissolved to give way to a collective authorship where it does not matter anymore who is pushing the bottom. It is all about strongly rolling in the uncertain direction set by a head changing by the essential replacements.
Decisions agreed in our studio in Madrid caused to appear by our cycling team in Wuhan city. Small poetic gestures buried by the weight of reality. Unlikely faraway goals only reached while obtaining them. Satisfactions besides competition which only help to carry on cycling.
