João Rocha

Media type

Dice are artifacts used to generate random numbers, usually with the purpose of enabling games of chance. This photograph was taken with a flatbed scanner and depicts two rolls of the dice, overlapped digitally. In portuguese, the word “dados” can be translated as either “dice” or “data”.


João Rocha is a brazilian visual artist. Most important to his research is the investigation of things which have been discarded and lost and the strangeness of the everyday life.

Through different mediums, his work strives to record and reinvent the experience of these things either through the appropriation and resignification of images and the deconstruction and reconstruction of narratives.
