52th International Art Exhibition. Think with the Senses - Feel with the Mind. Art in the Present Tense (2007)
The artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, along with the curators Priamo Lozada and Barbara Perea, was the first one to represent officially the Pavilion of Mexico, placed in the Parazzo Soranzo Van Axel, with the set of installations called Some things happen more often than all of the time.
The exhibition was constituted by six digital installations created with software and hardware designed especially for them. Since one of the principles of digital art is the direct interaction with the spectator, the works of Lozano-Hemmer allowed the visitors to experiment the works first-hand. The artist turns the body into a catalyzer tool for his work, which is transformed into an alternative of dialogue between visitors that, without the need of interacting with each other, can see themselves and the others through the installations.
