a line, however short, has an infinite number of points
„Andres Ramirez Gaviria’s art resolutely depicts life in a coded world.
These works reveal and critique the otherness of code, by order and perceived disorder, with microcontrollers, aerospace and hi-tech materials, strobes, sound performances, chopped and cut videos, printed text, and images. As with others, Gaviria’s work responds to, critiques, and embraces research and development from the mid-twentieth century. But what makes it so novel and compelling is that communication and information are often the formal subject of Gaviria’s works, yet rarely the method. Instead, his work uses the multiple processes of transcription and transmission to expose hidden, now dominant, representational pathways. Andres Ramirez Gaviria seeks code at the interstices of language and thoughts, which lie „between form of representation and interpretation.““ Quinn DuPont
„A preposition, when used with a noun or pronoun, indicates direction, location, and time. To place alongside. Near, nearby, next to. In regard to, together with, toward. What I am about to write is about relationships between things. About, after, around, owing to. A line has an infinite numbers of points. The consideration here is how to connect some of them.” Laura A. L. Wellen
