Hypermateria
[video performance/ Brazil & France, 2011]

[With Sandra López] Situation: two people (A and B) talk over Skype. Each of them has a bank account. Person A's account has 100 reais, whilst Person B's is empty. B makes a ‘piece of art’ and A buys it. So, A transfers the 100 reais to B's account, but because of the cost of the transaction, B receives only 90 reais. In the next step, A makes another ‘piece of art’ and B buys it. B transfers the 90 reais to A's account. A receives 80. This process is repeated until the money is gone.
