Take off :: Jose Arispe

PROJECT.
To spin around is to float. Float is flying. And to fly it is needed to take off.
Classical Ballet is about feeling sensations. The greatest effort is done inside the body, rather than outside. It is about to reach a connection with oneself. That is why to dance in points is amazing. To rise the feet to reach equilibrium is a bold action. We seek to float, to overcome the gravity we are forced to fall down. Our toes are the only witness of our mortal life. These are the only ones that hold us in this imperfect dimension. Just the small fingers of our feet lifting up human weight are the ones that connect us to our infinite universe hidden inside of us.
This very moment is registered as a foot print. It is the last memory left in earth that we ever attempted to fly.

HOW TO USE THE MONEY.
I will use the money to do big, huge photo prints of these Ballet footprints. The idea is to show these small figures left in a ballet dance floor in a huge size. So these prints are expensive to do. The money will be used to pay all these prints. About 15 to 20 prints, like 2 meters by 1 meter.
These will be exhibit in a large white wall.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO TELL US.
Yes. This work will be exhibit next year in La Paz- Bolivia at the Cultural Center of Spain. This space is already taken and confirmed for the exhibition.

Thank you.
Jose Arispe.
