GABRIEL OROZCO: Well, I always liked sport photographs, but most of them, over time, they get boring. I’m overlapping two images of movement. In one hand, the photograph of figures in movement, and on the other hand, a geometric shape that has movement. The geometric intervention on top of the photograph makes the movement of the bodies in the photograph more relevant, to be perceive in a different way. So I am canceling, and revealing that movement, and that image through this geometric pattern on top.
