More than the timeworn confrontation with a found object, Balones acelerados proposes a confrontation with time. The everyday sight of a deflated ball enters an emotional terrain, triggering childhood memories of pick-up games.

As in this piece, Orozco’s work stimulates our relationship with our memories in response to compact, seemingly ordinary gestures. At the same time, it reflects on sculpture in association with social structure and plays with the scale of the individual in relation to the object and one’s own memory.
