#body_writer is a project that takes the idea of a body that it's turning into a complex, virtual presence thanks to the ever improving technologies available and functioning thanks to it's constant (and now) permanent relationship with internet. Body_writer it's about queer bodies, which won't adapt to rigid social structures, their corresponding times and spaces, but instead finds on internet the availability to create or rewrite new ways of self awareness and enriched behaviours of time and space, to be able to be present in one or several places and defying that way, popular ideas about conditions only accomplished for sacred or divine beings.
That way, I thought about myself as subject of investigation and as some sort of virtual performer. To start, I re_wrote (measured) my whole body in a long process of exploration and recognition (something that as a gay person around a complicated social sphere was difficult to understand) and re_built my body in a 3d modelling software. In that process, I tried to rethink and understand some popular terms used as hashtags like: 
#body_building 
#body_improvement 
#body_under_construction 
#body_denial 
#body_acceptance
grabbing attention from people who use this terms, describing another situations in their social media posts. In the same way, I wanted to post myself (my virtual presence) imitating some popular situations or poses, seen on social media, but giving them a new significance.
This is a first cut of this project. This images have been posted on my instagram account to begin my research, but this project it's thought to be a whole artistic installation that uses and resignifies several digital devices as mobile phones, tablets, screens, projections, 3d printed objects and VR glasses. Making of the resulting images, dependant of such devices to properly manifest in the gallery or exhibiting space.
This work finally deals with bodies that appropriated the virtual space to enrich themselves, to affirm themselves and to reinforce themselves discursively, so that their manifestation in society is undeniable. Bodies denied but in turn, utopian bodies.

#bodyunderconstruction
I couldn't understand any relationship with my own body, until I reconstructed it within the virtual space (soul truly runs through the veins, I wish it can become data and spread)
