Cortázar Reloaded

Cortázar Reloaded consists of the simultaneous emission of a visual source and other acoustics: the zenithal projection of a phenakistoscope image and the voice of Julio Cortázar reading the text "Instructions to walk up stairs backwards". The visitor located in the center of the projective space will do the listening and visualization of both sources taken place at a speed adapted for the understanding and unfolding of its meaning. That is to say, the optical effect of the phenakistoscope and the understanding of the text of Cortázar only take place in an optimal way when the visitor settles in the center of the projection space.
