This design pretends to show a proportional relation between six centered ellipses growing their
dimensions according to the canvas size. I have added six rectangles to denote visually the growth
proportion between the ellipses width and high.
This sketch is built exclusively with line elements. The purpose is to build different pattern forms depending on the value
of some parameters. By means of iterative increments applied on the final point of each line to be drawn, the function achive
to build and display different shapes, which transmit the balance of symmetry. In addition to this,
in the first form (upper left) the result spreads certain 3D space sensation and visual movement.

Theme: Communication empowerment of digital technologies
Statement: In this work, I try to highlight the opportunities of the digital technologies
concerning the different communication languages, that are text, sound and images. Not only as isolated languages,
but also mixed in different proportions.
The main symbol of Goddess Durga (Sanskrit: meaning "the inaccessible" or "the invincible") denotates the
communication capabilities and/or breaches made possbile and/or caused by the globalization of communication
and content creation technologies. In a second level of symbology, Durga is one of the main forms of the Goddess Shakti
(from Sanskrit shak, "to be able"), meaning "power" or "empowerment". Besides that, and regarding formal composition,
with the display area fragmentation I attempt to evidence the digital environtment that surround us, how this
environtment is incorporated in relation with our history and the different communicatoin languages, and how saturated
can be the result of this experience. Within this area fragmentation, top Left to right diagonal reading show us
the digital environtment framework matching the resulting overload. On the other hand, the top right to left diagonal
reading tries to express the influence of our history and the different language inputs that surround and affect the
digital adapting fact.
Installation: The elements of this piece point out its placement in a wall as a whole.
Although this work is suscetible of division in 4 independent pieces that could be placed sequentialy in the
observer's way. Furthermore, the 4 fragments of the work can be isolated form each others in order to generate
memory of viewing. Producing, in this way, a reinforcement and reinterpretation of the messages of the piece.
