Look at you on the DISPLAY is the metamorphosis between the analogue and the digital, between the real world and the virtual world and its constant transformation as heterotopia, highlighting the existence of multiple and complex "sites".

It is a call for transformation and a change of attitude, in the reflection of isolation. It is visual communication from the filter of the digital sphere, as a vision that does not allow direct communication, on the road to dystopia.

It is the constant gaze from the DISPLAY format as an artefact that allows us to visualize expression in the world of cyberspace as ephemeral spaces, penetrating the digital domain and infiltration in a continuous form of metamorphosis, as a contemporary expression.

It is about constant monitoring at a distance, in the virtual world. We can be in symbiosis with the world of the interface, with an environment that surrounds it in a virtual computational and electronic world. Developed from digital creations of the "display" monitor as an expression of hybrid language with fractal geometry, which has glitch as its chaotic evolutionary system, based on error and disruption.
