A deflated art 

I could think about the economy and the inflation, and put them in a frame and boast myself of their peaks and valleys. 

Perhaps, if I see theses frames every day, they become landscapes, or another things, losing their economic analysis and beginning power.

Also, it could happen that from that new observation, start to emerge signals of something we don't see but that was always here, like a promise of the vacuum for the framed economy that never worked. 

In the deflated art, the plastics (balloons) form an image in their differences when they're mend, a new commonplace that even annulling its recreational function, bring into the play the idea of the plastic in art: inflatable plastics, plastic art, art polymers, there's no science... maybe this is what art doesn't need, the missing part of the inflatable to be a Koons, or a Lagos, a Nadín, or a Blanco. Take off the grace or disgrace to the one art that now looks all deflated.
