Bench Screen is a metallic screen adapted to a typical urban bench, its dimensions are ideal for capturing the movements of a person talking. On the benches images of speakers are recorded and projected in real time with the idea that the images take on a new dimension, taking them off the screens, a symbol of mediatic indifference, in order to achieve greater implication and communication based on personal relations.
The first version is an EVA cover for a seat that was exhibited in Futur Compost” (La Virreina, Barcelona 1999). Prior to this in 2003 the Screen bench was developed for the Forum de las Culturas Barcelona 2004.
