Diffeomorphic Bodies series is a continuation of my work series focusing on interaction between two bodies. The two bodies are embedded in a movement sequence that presents the bodies in a topological space within a multidimensional system.
Space and energy in constant change environs the bodies. The bodies are always processing and assimilating situations of maximum topological fluctuation, forcing the bodies to generate moments of maximum equilibrium. The topological bodies are continuously under stresses that decompose and reconfigure their topological condition.
Diffeomorphic Bodies series depict the constant socio-physicological transformation that our bodies are suffering depending on the kind of experimented interaction, emerging the animal and human.
José Salinas is an artist and architect, founder of KNOBSDesign. KNOBS (Knowledge Based System) expands the boundaries of traditional architectural practice from buildings and urban design to gallery installations and augmented interactive environments. All projects are exploring inner living spaces, shaped by external machinist systems of information that transform and generate new topological configurations; and are equally concerned with new types of building systems.
The work of José Salinas has been exhibited internationally in numerous galleries, including: GLORIA Gallery, Madrid, Weissenhof Architecture Gallery, Stuttgart; A trans Pavilion, Berlin; The Architectural Association Gallery, London; AedesEast/Extension Pavilion, Berlin; Schafler Gallery, Pratt Institute, New York; Galeria Arificial, Madrid; Taubman College Gallery, University of Michigan; AIA Center for Architecture. New York; Batofar Multimedia Event, Paris; Wi-Fi in the Royal Gardens, Copenhagen.
José Salinas received his Master of Architecture from The Architectural Association and has taught at Universidad Europea, Escuela Superior de Arte y Arquitectura in Madrid; Cornell University in New York; MIT Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston; Princeton University in New Jersey and Pratt Institute in New York.
In addition, he has lectured internationally including Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design (ABK), Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), GSD Harvard in Boston, The Architectural Association in London, Pontificia Universidad Católica in Chile, Frankfurt Academy of Fine Arts (Staedelschule), and Instituto Cervantes in Berlin.
