Table Contents is set up as a large dissection table on which a visually anachronistic body made up of dismembered books about the origins of cinema is placed. This material undergoes diverse compositional procedures whose structure of action attempts to reproduce the complex visual signals used by the subconscious to produce dreams, namely: interruption, displacement, superimposition, diffusion and reduction. Formally the work uses the table of contents of the book The Uncanny by Nicholas Royle (2003) as a guide through which the elaboration of different sculptural matrixes are superimposed on the images. These matrixes, which are in the end the void left by the text of the table of contents when it is eliminated, localise the symbolic instability and regulate the flux of images, creating a visual fabric that communicates or informs us of nothing definitive.
