His work is called "Gamers OK", and with it the artist imagines thousands of bullets constantly passing through the walls of the city; an increasing eight-digit number on a large screen located in Casablanca Park. Some have told him that viewers will need more data to understand it, but that does not bother Mauricio Abad, but to show that "there are many hidden processes, of which we are part, that we are experiencing in this country and we do not notice them."
Perhaps for that reason, to uncover the unknown, he has preferred that people to imagine what the project is about. This artist has been working with a principle catalogued by him as "mental image" where the piece offers a set of clues for the public to establish assumptions. "My work is what you can imagine, I work with that image I put in your head."
