From the enigmatic blue screen, present in some videos from Auxiliar de Gravidade, Uncanny Blue Colour finds itself as a reflection on this contemporary technical failure on TV or computer screens that can be at the same time the absence of information, data or connection.
Setting up a dialogue with history and art studies — the importance of Ultramarine Blue in painting, the work of Yves Klein or Anish Kapoor, as well as Blue by Derek Jarman — this work provides a new look on the possibilities of the screen, mistery, reality and fiction.
The same way technology has grown due to our capability to question the world, now technology has the strength to make us wonder — what is the real meaning behind the blue screen?
