Psycho Geometry V at Five Years London 2007

"simulation"
and "virtual"
summarize this liquidation
in which every
signification is eliminated
by its own sign, and the
profusion of signs parodies
a by now unobtainable reality.

Later we entered El Departamento, the PISOS where all placed close to each other, but separate in the front space at the entrance of the dept .
