Deconstruction Machine


This project aims to explore the concept of deconstruction created by Jacques Derrida and to use it inside artistic processes of creation. The idea is to create a site-specific interactive installation that can visually and poetically deconstruct what has been constructed around a symbol that was always present in the architecture of a building that is famous for surviving the 2nd world war. Once the deconstruction process is completed and the symbol is for a moment released of its historical meaning, it is possible to reconstruct a new meaning around it.

The whole project then, points to the idea of de-constructing or breaking what its supposed to be understood in one specific way, to then re-construct new meaning around it.
