Project: Dove in draws

The Dove in Draws project is a temporary artistic action expected to occur at ground zero of the the downtown of the city of Sao Paulo - Sé, Marco Zero - on May 30, 2010, with the placement of temporary metal gutter pieces painted in red around this landmark, which serves as a feeder to the many doves that inhabit the place to form another drawing. This project aims to establish also a "virtual" connection through zero landmarks of several cities that have the presence of doves, whose action / demarcation in each place becomes a point.

Date: 30/05/2010
Situ: Praça da Sé, São Paulo, Brazil

Project Dove in Draws - Process

It was quite difficult do find some place to make the hexagon's steel gutter pieces here in São Paulo. Finally, we found a good place that could make the right angles. After this kind of journey, we could finally start the painting step. We confess that when we visualize steel gutters on the floor, we were a bit surprised by their "real" dimensions, because until now we were only with the graphic design project. We were quite excited about the outcome of the first base gutter painting. The next step is the red painting.

Jet lag

archive - digital photography - Curitiba, Brazil

Jet lag medically referred to as desynchronosis is a physiological condition which is a consequence of alterations to circadian rythms; it is classified as one of the circadian rhytms sleep disorders. Jet lag results from rapid long-distance transmeridian (east-west or west east) travel, as on a jet plane.

When traveling across a number of time zones, the body clock will be out of synchronisation with the destination time, as it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the rhythms to which it has grown accustomed: the body's natural pattern is upset, as the rhythms that dictate times for eating, sleeping, hormone regulation and body temperature variations no longer correspond to the environment nor to each other in some cases. To the degree that the body cannot immediately realign these rhythms, it is jet lagged.

The speed at which the body adjusts to the new schedule depends on the individual; some people may require several days to adjust to a new time zone, while others experience little disruption.
