LAUNAMTIX. La obra análoga de Manuel González busca generar una opción de apreciación abstracta mediante un ejercicio de montaje y color. La obra en cuestión no asume directamente un mensaje, sino más bien una instancia contemplativa que tensiona al destinatario desde su relación con la observación misma, entendida como anulación del ejercicio productivo per se, en función de una distensión estética.
