- I feel like GodDuration: 1’19’’ / Image: Personal Family Footage, 1973 / Music: Francisco MeirinoFormat: DV-PAL, 16/9, color
- I use family footage to re-design new visual spaces which can be read and absorbed by different viewers in different ways, using them to renegotiate and reaffirm my personal memories. In this short video images are treated as reflected mirrors, autonomous objects of a past time which doesn’t have any geographical nor chronological context, seen as portraits from an utopian archaic childhood. Elements such as nature, trees, human beings and animals are parts of a bucolic diptych, a sign of God/Spectator will and control over the forces that share the screen. The spectator assist to a scene which is common and familiar in everyone’s mind and consciousness, but materialized into something ancestral. Every element seems to be under another element’s control and force, the small chicks in the young girls’ hands, the nature surrounding them. Every element symbolizes the purity and the innocence (the children, the small birds, the sunny forests) but also a inner and cruel force belonging to every being. The Eden is in front of us, the pre-consciousness world asset with its forces and drives. Some sound signs emerge from this living diptych, the first sounds ever heard.
