The construction processes of artistic pieces are at a crossroad. The fact that artistic production is unlimited in terms of blending techniques, theories and knowledge; intersecting areas and disciplines that do not recognize boundaries between them; methodological proposals; eclecticisms of methods and models that adapt to the context and the construction of reality itself; materials and multiplicity of the same ones that the technology has built for us to use them, have made that, within the current art system, that responds to a market model, we have to rethink how to think the production processes of artistic pieces. From this perspective, the being of the piece, which contains its own condition of possibility through a bio-generative/constructive process, has led us to rethink the question: what is the artistic piece? Thus, increasingly, we move away from occupations like who decides what artistic is, what aesthetic is, the artistic critic to build criteria, and focus on sharing the process and experience of the being of the piece that doesn’t recognize any category or definition.

If we assume “peace” as a sign that has been inherited, with it we also inherit a whole series of previous constructions presumed as absolute truths. It’s evident that we can’t think of peace in the middle ages, as we think it today. The human being, as a project of projects, has the condition of being able to transmute, through updating. We build “peace” as a sign, first, from a human perspective that thinks its space/time, ejected it towards the future, but at the same time reflecting its past. Second, as a subjective constructed concept that fills the cultural and social space/time it inhabits. We have poems, essays, novels about peace. We inherited sonatas, hymns, sublime arias on the subject. Images that come from the memories and images that are passing by and we build to embrace and quote them. But, peace is a personal construct. It contains complexity, uncertainty and speculation statements, lightness form the three letters that make it up in Spanish, and it’s a short whisper that transits in images through a street without being transited.
