This is the crux of the matter: the intersection of technology and the body, and the intersection of the body and the social world.In a series of photos, the artists, their faces blurred, face obscured, pose in front of the camera, their hands in a gesture of self-imposed silence, while their bodies are marked by a series of digital marks, which, in turn, are marked by the artists own hand. The series is called Untitled (Artists taking pictures), and the photos are grouped according to the subjects' physical characteristics: a white-skinned male, for example, standing with his arms crossed in front of a blue wall; a young woman, who wears a white dress, a pair of dark glasses, and a black-gloved hand; a woman with a black-gloved hand and a black-gloved hand, both of which are covered with digital traces of the artists own fingerprints; and a man in a black suit, who holds a black-gloved hand and a handkerchief in front of a white wall. The works in this series are thus not only about the body and the body alone but also about the body and the social world, and about the body and the body and the social world. They are not merely portraits, but about the body and the body and the body and the world.The exhibition also included a series of photographs of the artists themselves, taken at different times of day and in different places, in various states of undress and in various states of undress. These photos were taken in the studio and in the artists' home in Porto, Portugal, where the artist is based. The photographs were also taken in the cities of Barcelona, Lisbon, and Madrid, in addition to the artists' own studio in Frankfurt. In these photographs, the artists seem to be addressing the nature of the relationship between the body and the world.

The exhibition opens with an interactive video that is a kind of manifesto for the project: a series of interviews with the artist, a group of anthropologists and a botanists, and a botanist who has been studying the species since the 1960s. The videos evokes a kind of hyperreality, a virtual world that is itself a kind of video game, a social and/or scientific simulation that the pair playfully play with, as if to play with the human body. This is the kind of hyperreality that is also a kind of reality, a reality that can be experienced as a form of simulation.The exhibition then moves into a new phase, a post-reality that is also a post-human reality. The work here is a kind of research project, and the videos and drawings are part of the research, as are the works that are included in the exhibition, including a number of sculptures and a sculpture. The two artists are both involved with the production of social sculpture, and both of them are also involved with the production of social and political sculpture. In a sense, the exhibition is a kind of meta-art, and the works that are exhibited are a kind of meta-art. The works are also a kind of manifesto: the two artists are making a statement about the nature of art and the nature of the human body, and about the nature of the exhibition. In a sense, the exhibition is also a self-portrait, and the artist is the artist.The exhibition opens with a series of videos that explore the idea of the body as a site of transference. The videos are also part of the research, and they are also part of the exhibition. The videos, which are not in the show, were made by the pair during their visits to the botanical gardens of the Botanical Gardens of the University of Sao Paulo. The videos are related to the two artists, and they are also part of the exhibition.

The exhibition also included a series of virtual-reality works that feature the artist in virtual spaces, such as a virtual-reality installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, where he and Pinheiro hung out and played games, and a video that the artist shot in a bar in Mexico City. The video was projected on the walls and on the ceiling of the gallery, and the images were displayed on a screen that was itself installed in a virtual space. The project, which is made up of three videos, is also an installation, in which the artists own body is a site of action in the virtual space of the computer.The exhibition also included a series of drawings that show the artists use of the keyboard as a tool to perform various activities, including painting, drawing, and writing. These works were created by a computer program that generates drawings that are then printed and assembled into wall-mounted pieces of paper. The drawings are accompanied by text that refers to the artists interests in the same way that the text in the videos is related to the subjects of the videos. In the exhibition, these drawings were paired with a video of the artists in the same virtual space. In this case, the drawings were the basis for the virtual space, which became the site of the video, which was shown on a monitor placed on the floor.The exhibition was thus a series of spaces that, for the artist, were a place to engage with the world. The work of these artists and the virtual space they inhabit are constantly metamorphosing, and the artists themselves are becoming more and more visible as a result. The exhibition also included a video that the pair shot in Mexico City, where they are now based. The video was projected on the wall of a small room, which the pair used as a studio. The video is a simple reenactment of a scenario from the previous exhibition, in which the artists used the same space as their own, and the same keyboard as their own.

In this way, the show at least partially addressed the ways in which the real-world sociality of the internet has been transformed into a digital-reality phenomenon, and perhaps even the ways in which the rise of the microeconomy has transformed the art world. This was made clear by the presence of the two artists in the gallery: 100porcent and Pinheiro, who have collaborated since 1999. The works in the show were also based on the same format: photos and text, but in a digital medium (photography, text, and collage), and with a different approach to the construction of images. The images are not made up of any individual elements, but are constructed from the most common elements that the artist finds on the internet: images of the same subject or images of the same place, for instance, of a house with a large view of the sea. The text, written by the artists, is a series of sentences and collages in English and Portuguese, written in English and Portuguese, with images of the house, the sea, and the Internet, and made up of the words and images of 100porcent and Pinheiro, who also translated the texts into their native Portuguese. The texts are a kind of metatext, an explanation of the world as a place of images and texts, and a critique of the circulation of images and texts through the social media. They are also a critique of the media and the way that it creates illusions of meaning in the world. In this way, they refer to the tendency of the media to substitute itself for the real world.The exhibition also included a video, a video, and a video installation, as well as a film, and a series of collages. These were made up of photographs of the house with the same subject as the texts, but with a different meaning.

The project, which was recently presented in the exhibition in Cologne and New York, is a dream of a social network, a dream that is the dream of a technological dream machine, and that has become a reality in the present.The exhibition opens with a wall text, the artists first. This piece is an analysis of the relationship between the individual and the social network, which is one of the fundamental themes of the project 100porcent_genuine. In the text, Pinheiro describes the network as the manifestation of a social system that is very much in the future, a dream, a dream of a world. The dream is expressed by the artist as a virtual reality, a fantasy, and the dream is expressed by the individual as a digital image. The dream is a political ideal, a utopian social system, which will be realized by all the participants in the network. The dream is the social ideal, the ideal of a society that is open to the imagination and that is open to the participation of all. This is the dream of a digital image, which is also the dream of a social ideal, one that is expressed by the individual as a digital image. The dream is a dream of a technological system, a dream of a social ideal, and one that will be realized by all the participants in the network. The dream is the dream of a social ideal, the dream of a technological system, a dream of a social ideal. The dream is the dream of a digital image, which is also the dream of a social ideal, one that is expressed by the individual as a digital image.
