How to draw a ghost?: Easy, just make a translation and repeat the task again again.

We insist of living from the death..
The history is a logical technique progression but is a past disclamation too, the space/time transcendence in internet is a clock of life in a timeline that no one wants to scroll down, an overwriting archive full of pentimenti, obliteration and palimpsest in a big hard multidimensional and translucent white cover without form.
I want develope a pictorial corpus of work by analogic and digital translations emphasizing the process as formal element in the investigation of invisible and collective forget. Create a digital repository of information representing syncretic way of painting and its potential as a historiographical element. Conclude an investigation on technical “progress” in painting and the relationship it has with art and contemporary modes of production in relation to the palimpsest from layers.
draw a picture and translate it into animated gif, then pass it to sound and translate it into painting every two weeks.
