You can’t speed time up, you can’t slow it down and neither can you rewind it. The best you can do is to freeze that second. The Mexican deassemblage artist Damian Ortega creates suspended sculpture, diagrams and manuals brought to life, which expose the inner components of some products. For me, it looks like an instant explosion of these products or a scene in “Matrix” movie, while Damian Ortega tries to capture this second. Damian Ortega achieved worldwide attention with his breakout hit “Cosmic Thing” in the 2003 Venice Biennale, in which he reassembled a Volkswagon Bug, the populist car manufactured in his home country.
