Existence Through Distance
In the virtual gallery you will find a room with an immersive video installation. One video, titled Mis Hijos is projected on the wall; it features a poem written and recited by my mother, Lisbeth.
The second video, titled Lo Invisible, is projected on moving flags to reference the wind. This video has a collection of outdoor sounds, layering birds and wind from my isolated walks. This video references our vulnerability during a pandemic; we can’t see the cause of the problems, but it is there. This leads to fear and anxiety of how a virus can travel around the world, leaving no visible trace apart from glaring absences from our community.
