With the work Antirrevolution, Shelly Modesto pins a society that is watching, static, the worst moment in the country's recent history, as if it were waiting for a game or website to load. The provocation is clear: "Wait...". But until when? While the animation of the reticence suggests that there is a process underway, the incessant repetition of the small set of images contradicts the textual message. Will the viewer be brought out of the trance? Elements of video games from the 80s and 90s, pixel art, and glitch art give form to the animated GIF by chaining 39 distinct frames, repeated in an infinite loop. The work also contains an experiment with the phenomenon of the persistence of vision: a figure of death that sometimes haunts us.
