SERIES: IMPRESSIONS Silver-gelatine on paper. 1999-2001 This series shows Impressions of a city at a time of day when the crowds have withdrawn from public spaces and those letf behind are confronted by their solitude and loneliness. They become part of the landscape merging into it. The visibility of the film gram was Important from a formal aspect for me. Its significance in the context of the overall Image is a metaphor about the meaning of an individual inside a society and the relationship between humans and inanimate matter.
Ml CIELO Silver-gelatine on celluloid ,2002 Mi Cielo means ‘my heaven“ in spanisn and Is a common term of endeament, equivalent to “my darling“. For this work I took a photograph or a television screen showig a sky. Since the photo is an extreme close-up, the screen grid became the dominant element of the image. The work is prompted by a reflection on the influence of mass media in determinig now their consumers view me world, as well as the queston of what happens when people‘s realily is replaced with a generic image of it The title plays with the paternalistc attitude of mass media towards their consumers.
