How Can You Document the Look of a Lover?

Immersive installation of a video performance 
2021

This work has been produced during Net//Work residency with Digital Arts Studios DAS Belfast, Northern Ireland.

This is a story of my body, borders and time. How one, or the other, stole a moment from me, a moment to long on the ruins of a memory.

 

This piece is dedicated to all the times my body seemed capable of liquifying to cross borders but never able to distinguish which is stronger, for all the times my body transformed to be the continuity of that line separating the inside from the outside and myself from crossing to the other side. To all the times none of that mattered because that one moment has already passed.

 

I invite you to share a moment with me, reflect and think about the following questions before watching the video performance.

------------------------------------------------------

Can you think of a beautiful memory? 

.

.

Can you tell what forms it? 

.

.

Can you remember the smell of it? The colour of it? Taste? Texture?

Can you describe them?

.

.

Have you ever wished you can document the look of your lover and hold it with you above all borders?

Do you know what holds you back from being elsewhere, perhaps in a beautiful country or in the arms of your love?

.

.

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you were born elsewhere? In a different year? Day? Hour?

.

.

 

Does that mean we are trapped in the destiny of that moment? Or are we the imprisoners of remembrance?

Please take a moment to grab your earphones, and if you have a VR headset this would be the ideal set up to share this moment, I invite you to bring me with you to your private space, home, or wherever your feet stand. Let’s exchange time/space
