Milton Marques is part of that team of artists, inventors. His artworks draw upon a low-tech repertoire, what we see are experiences that are at the same time craft and technical, with digital videos and technological devices that have already been destroyed. Marques’ oeuvre includes optical components, printers, copiers, scanners, cameras and other mechanisms devoid of its original function. Milton Marques thus creates small gadgets capable of restoring a poetry unthinkable for these entities that were already doomed to oblivion.
