Eduardo Matos’ works intersect the languages of  image/video/sculpture with the spatial and interactive three dimensionality of the installation. In his site-specific works, he recreates and deconstructs the simulation of a game that contains aesthetic, social, political, and geographic and identity metaphors. He collects elements and remnants from the civil universe- its codes, laws and rules, events and history- that he uses to fill up a space, in a composition, that attempts to establish a relation amongst them. These are not narratives or descriptions but disrupted images, which build up realities and question the organizational, management and learning processes that are part of modern democratic society.
