For Chapter One we have traced and invited a small group of artists from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean to complement and contextualize the main ideas underlying this project; Absorption, Obsession and Encounter which form a rich mosaic of concerns to be interlocked with some of the PoderesUnidos founding axes: (Power, Fate, Energy).
As it stands today, the research and discovery of beliefs that could be judged as trascendental inevitably return us to the realm of the everyday. Having defeated the expectations of the umpteenth End of the World, the encounter with alien forms of consciousness, time travel or intergalactic space, some earthlings decide to return their attention to the immediate. The environment of the usual, its virtualization or the tools which intervene in the achievement, (even more, the preservation) of the intangible capital of beliefs define a constellation of attitudes, customs and processes which, from imagination, pour themselves into creative development.
Rating our causation and its fictitious possibilities of agreement, meeting or communication with the Others is the content of Those who remain. Explorers of the obsession, of love and identity, these Guests opt to relate with the invisible -with others, in short- thru skillful games that integrate material technologies and intangibles processes. In this Chapter they plea for a subtle body of experiences and insights, elusive and fragile in their constitution, although illuminative in the exciting drift they have decided to pursue in the search of all the others, us who wait.
