Video mapping installation of 22 different videos into 22 photo frames of different sizes.

Images are composed by colours and feelings, shapes and consciousness. Through a crisp selection of videos, I tell a fragmented story; a testimony of my inner search and the tale of two countries.

a human aquarium

It is a recreation of an aquarium where the only animal that live inside the fish tank is a human being. In this case, myself, representing different kinds of marine animals. The film could be seen as activism for animal rights. I think aesthetically, fish tanks and aquariums look very pretty. But the trapped fish and marine mammals look so sad in there, not to mention the cruelty of the way they’re treated. Why do we go to aquariums to see animals forced to swim around us and do tricks just to entertain us, if we can portray humans instead?

No animals were harmed during the creation of this film.

 Shown in the Zeiss Planetarium in Jena, Germany and in the Museum of Modern Art (MAM Rio) in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.

heimweh (2016)

heimweh (2016)

heimweh (homesickness)

Missing home, the ocean, the sun, colors and textures. Heimweh (german word for Homesickness) deals with the emotions of life far away from family and the place where I grew up. At the same time, it’s a distant and distorted representation, as if I don’t remember anymore how my life truly was before I left.

Videoperformance, Color, Full HD, 07min42sec, Silent.

 A lazy Susan is a turntable (rotating tray) placed on a table or countertop to aid in moving food. Lazy Susans may be made from a variety of materials but are usually glass, wood, or plastic. They are usually circular and placed in the center of a circular table to share dishes easily among the diners. Owing to the nature of Chinese cuisine, especially dim sum, they are especially common at formal Chinese restaurants both on the mainland and abroad *.  *taken from Wikipedia.  Back in 2009, three years after my grandfather had died, I reunited with my family in Panama as we usually gathered on a round table to eat chinese food. Playing around I came across with the idea of placing the camera on top of the lazy Susan and just make it go round and round while shooting, without imaging that exactly three years later I was going to be doing the same camera game with an unknown part of my family, this time in China in the place where my dead grandfather was born.

ting bu dong ( i hear you but i don't understand)

This video piece is a collection of digital images and sounds that can be heard and seen every day in China today. The images were all shot from a window, glass, or an elevator. They reflect my emotions in China, where there is always a barrier between me and the environment. I see but I do not belong. 

The locations are Shanghai, Beijing, Xi'an, and roads in the province of Gansu in the direction of Tianshui, Lanzhou and Xiahe.

family portraits

It is a collection of gif files in 'loop' of black and white photos of my family re-placed on different backgrounds in color with textures that remind me of home, sometimes Panama, sometimes Panachina.
