Full Description

A scenario is constructed generally as a binary unfolding, where often action, and passion alternate, to create suspense, dramatic tension. The spectators keep watching a movie because of the simple fact that they want to know what going to happen next in the scenario. "Spoiler", this word means the fact to told to a spectator who is watching a film, a description of a narrative that relates plot elements not revealed early in the narrative itself, and by doing so ruining the suspense, the dramatic tension of the movie. The spectator are mostly captivated by a film because they want to know what gonna happen next.

In this installation a movie is broadcast on a screen set up in a room. When people enter the room their silhouette are, in real time encrusted on the movie. Inside their silhouette the same film and soundtrack is broadcast but ten minutes later. The presence of a spectator reveal a part of what happen next during the next scene in the scenario, producing a narrative shortcut, creating a coexistence of two or more temporality in the same movie. There is also a spatial interaction, to reveal a part of the movie, the spectator have to move around, because it is only his (silhouette) shape that reveal a spatial part of the movie.
