Hal investigates the human incompleteness through aspects of the word, memory, and social awareness. In a creative process split into chapters, the artist proposes a new esthetic language in every series, appropriating from the expressive possibilities of many materials and technical processes. Currently, Hal uses the typewriting machine as a symbolic element, reaffirming the redemption of the memory and the word.
“We are active agents of each written letter, how does written history influence the history that is still to happen?”
The typewriting machine gives light to the forgotten memories, reaffirming that it is necessary to remember things so that they don’t happen again. The “scrambled” letters are like historical moments in confusing narratives, words that are still in formation, a text that is written in the current moment. The dispute for historical narratives steals the spotlight in Hal’s artistic phase, revealing the moment we are living as a mirror of the past.
