The term buffer is used in computer technology to define a space of memory in which the information is stored in preparation for process or transfer. The buffer receives the information in a disorganized and abrupt manner and delivers it regularly in packets adequate for further manipulation.
The work Buffer is a device executing metaphorically the same function, ordering human been as data through its physical displacement in space. Its mechanism refers to daily life situations in which the population of big cities interacts with public services. The sculpture shows the basic structure of these situations. Visitors experiencing the work would feel a repetitive and mechanic excitement close to alienation.
