2004. THE VISIBLE AND THE HIDDEN

In this sequence I work both with appearances and aspects that contribute to construct people’s personalities. It’s amazing to see how important the past is. A past that in many occassions we haven’t even lived, but which, having been crucial for our ancestors, becomes and influences us.
It consists of light boxes with special mirrors and family scenes transfered into the boxes. The spectator sees his or her reflection in the box and as he/she turns the lights with a grader, the images appear. In each box there is a sound that has some kind of link with the scene itself or the historical moments it belongs to.
