Aguas Bajan

english translation below


Advances without pause, occupy, fill everything up. Floods.
Enters, penetrates, overflows, conquers all space.
It does not stop.
Is a vain attempt to contain it, a meaningless consolation.
The night, the silence and the screams, the eternal rain.
Short lights and the inevitable struggle against the loss.
Titans comes out from me. Tears, prayers. Exhausted efforts.
I breathe uncertainty, I beat fear.
Adrenaline, yearning for a hug. I pray it to stop, I pray for knowing about the outdoors.
Pray that I may leave.
The water comes down and the corroded surfaces shows me what’s under the masks. All of us, without exception, have been unmasked.
The light of the day after, day that lasts for months, shows me our truths. Horrible and beautiful.
The water comes down, taking off our skin. We are in the flesh.

Cover the sun

insisting in stacking up 
as boxes
or coffins
we are climbing
to cover the sun

The city of La Plata was planned and built with a humanistic vision. Since its foundation in 1882, was reference in urban planning. His neat layout, its infinite perspectives, squares and wide streets sidewalks. The green, the sun and the air in friendly dialogue with the city.

Accelerated and contrasting changes to the foundational principles ensued in the recent years in a changing urban landscape. For 4 years I registered with my camera as an attempt to protect what we’ve been missing. Cover the sun is a look on these changes, it is an invitation to wonder about the way of life in cities, their growth, their development and how cities are owners of their inhabitants.

Cover the sun in its video version, he has participated in numerous urban interventions and events related to life in cities. It has also been projected in cycles of short and feature films.
