Luz Y Fuerza // Expanded Cinema is an art collective stablished in 2012 from Mexico City that is dedicated to the experimentation with light, technology and space by the use of sustainable technics and materials. All this with the intention of generating artistic expressions through moving images. The collective unites diverse group of visual artists, multimedia artists, scenography, illumination and industrial design so that experience and work capacity is fully covered.

We consider that grabbing and appropriating the thechnological tolos that surround us is fundamental for the comprehension and recognition of themselves. Its clear that we cannot aspire to fully understand how all the devices we use work, but we have discovered that analogic tecnologies offer us a wide spectre of possibilities to become independent from the consumer systems, how audiovisual media is created, and how quality is achieved.

We take the concept of obsolescence as part of a discourse that favors the development of capitalist society, generating illusory needs that alienate us from reality, making us unconcious about the relation that we mantain with the environment in which we live and develop. For this same reason we experiment with the use and developement of sustainable forms of energy and living styles. Always defending the organic carácter of technology and offering alternatives of sensibilization to the public.

Luz Y Fuerza // Expanded Cinema achieves its objectives and investigations trough 3 different types of work: The construction of homemade analog projection devices for kinetik image instalations, live-cinema performances and the investigation of light and optics trough art workshops we teach.

Now the collective is developing the Project “BICINEETICO” winner of the scholarship “Apoyo para la Investigación y producción de arte y medios 2012” granted by Centro Multimedia CNA (National Arts Center).

Most of the members in this collective were also part of “La Trinchera Ensamble” an international collective of audiovisual improvisation with a wide trajectory that includes shows for museums and festivals like: the ESSL Museum in Viena, Ausria, The Mexparismental Festival in La Cleff cinema in Paris, France, The Centro Cultural de España in Bueno Aires, Argentina, The Engelman-Ost Collection in Montevideo, Uruguay, Museo de la ciudad and the Laboratotio de Arte Alameda, both in Mexico City.
