This project was carried out as a master’s thesis in the Master’s program in Plastic Arts at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University in Bogota. Centrifugal Force is a one-hour performance in which two people interact by reading aloud and running. The reading is a poetic text written by me, which refers to my conception of artistic processes as cyclic forces that trigger one another. During the reading, a second person runs around the space, in circles during the time it takes to read the text, complementing with his action an experience of exhaustion that produces the concretion of an idea.

Beyond the attempt to finalize a process of academic creation with a concrete conclusion I have decided to propose this open space
understood at first as term – to address the uncertainty as an artistic problem. Proposing the possibility to raise questions with the promise to preserve the potential of mobility which present themselves in the processes, made it clear, that my interest is in the unsolved midway points and not in the concluding ends.
