Exhibition

Take the original, leave the copy is an interactive installation that relies on an exhibition space to safeguard it. The piece consists of a collection of sheets of paper hung on the wall, on which are printed reproductions of works of art (or their remains). The specimens represented are the result of an analysis of the Wikipedia database under two criteria: their proximity to the word ‘art’ (in hyperlinks); and the number of visits accumulated in the last 30 days. Their arrangement depends on a formal abstraction of the constellation formed by these hyperlinked pieces. Finally, in the room there is a photocopier and an indication: Take the original, leave the copy, inviting visitors to copy what is exhibited and leave the copy in its place.
