26 Metros de Secretos es un proyecto de intervención artística y participación ciudadana en Valladolid mediante la fotografía participativa (un método que utiliza el acceso a la tecnología y producción de imágenes como sistema para trabajar ciertos aspectos dentro de un grupo y hacerlos visibles en la esfera pública) que quiere generar un debate sobre
la estructura urbana y su evolución y el arte como medio de comunicación y transmisor de mensajes.

“26MdS” quiere también provocar una reflexión sobre lo subliminal, la simbología, los códigos y los secretos que el arte guarda y con los cuales da a conocer acontecimientos, formas de pensar o realidades de muy variada índole (personales o sociales, públicas o privadas…)

Queremos que la gente se implique en esta actividad, participe y muestre de manera subliminal y artística a través de la fotografía instantánea un secreto, una idea oculta, algo que quieran mostrar o dar a conocer sin revelarse a si mismos (tatuajes, cicatrices, sentimientos, ideas...), mostrar, en definitiva, la Valladolid oculta que hacemos entre todos los que vivimos en ella. Porque nuestra ciudad no solo es lo que se ve a simple vista, lo que todos conocemos o lo que queremos que se sepa de nosotros y de lo nuestro. También la forman sus secretos, secretos individuales, de unos pocos o colectivos. Secretos que conocemos y otros de los que nunca nos enteraremos, secretos que son nuestros incluso aunque no lo sepamos.

La actividad se va a desarrollar el próximo 21 de marzo en el siguiente horario:de 11:00 a 14:00 y de 17:00 a 20:00 horas en el Callejón de los Torneros, situado entre una óptica y el Café del Norte de la Plaza Mayor. Durante ese tiempo cualquier persona que lo desee puede entrar en el callejón y participar en la actividad haciendo una foto para la muestra y/o escribiendo un pequeño texto de un máximo de 26 palabras (tantas como metros tiene el callejón), en un espacio privado, con los cuales contar o mostrar de manera anónima uno o varios secretos. Después tan solo deberán dejarlo expuesto en las paredes del callejón, que estarán habilitadas para tal efecto y disfrutar de las que otras personas hayan ya colgado. Así mismo también podrán ver una pequeña muestra con información sobre los callejones más famosos de nuestra ciudad y su historia.

As recognition of this and as an example of the contemporary local creation and of a new generation of artistic talents, the City Museum will present the artwork Momentum to the public: "From the atmosphere concept, a space A is encapsulated in a engaging space B. Beyond an isolated installed object, it intended to act as an activator of the space in which it is inserted, underlining its physical characteristics. Numerical data broadcasted by web become into mechanical intensity and get close geographically distant areas; the permanence of the architectural surroundings dialogue with the kinetic transience of the installation. Momentum is microcosmic, regular and random; it creates friction and temporary relations between the suspended substances. "
