Sorra Màgica is an action conducted by Oriol Ocaña and myself from our research around the materiality of objects. This research begins with La Tassa Simondon also featured in Fer Coses amb les Coses exhibition.
The action consisted in trying to make a copy of La Tassa Simondon with a magic sand, that keep the shape you give her, but at the same time, it’s useless as construction material. That’s because you would broke the cup if you try to drink with it.
Our goal was to know the object from others sides. By trying to copy it you get a deeper knowledge of the object, of its nature, its shape and its possibilities.
