“Change is the only constant” Heraclitus
The only constant in the human condition is change; it is part of our essence.
Change. Transformation. Move. Evolution. Movement. Emotion.
Move is a visual and spatial exploration of a real move. After living 13 years in Galicia, Maria is moving back to
the USA and this decision immerses her in the exercise of organizing, selecting and reflecting on everything
she possesses. As a collector, as a gatherer and as an artist, she faces a complicated decision: she has to
choose what to take with her, what to leave behind, and what to throw away.
Every move we make is loaded with great symbolic and emotional significance, which is very difficult to
describe. All moves emerge from a need for change, in contrast to our daily routines; they imply a total break
with our current lives.
Move is synonymous of review, re-organization, re-structuring and transformation, not only of your things, but
also of your emotions, your achievements, your failures and your aspirations.
Although objects are inanimate, nevertheless, they are brought to life when they form a part of a persons’ space.
Your objects portray you, they characterise you, they accompany you, they affect you and they express more
about you than ever words can say. Objects are charged with emotions and gravitate in our personal universe
bringing value and sense to all that surround us.
