    "MY AMERICAN UNCLE" Video-installations, drawings and photos. Hope and disapointment are two completely opposing states, but at the same time they are intimitely related, one preceding the other, passing from happiness to disappoinment, to the unexpected. Who hasn't been hopeful thinking, or dreaming, they had an unknown, rich uncle in America? That distant relative, who one day emigrated following the american dream, who doesn't have other family besides you to which he... can leave his fortune, of whom you knew nothing before, whose existence was hidden from you by your parents and uncles and suddenly the news arrives one day that you are the sole heir to his estate. One can also take the contrary case that your American uncle is living on the street, sick, etc. And you are his only remaining relative, then what happens? This project is intended to illustrate the difficulty of maintaining hope—the dreams for a better and uncertain future, where everything will be there to be discovered. Read Less

"MY AMERICAN UNCLE"
Video-installations, drawings and photos.

Hope and disapointment are two completely opposing states, but at the same time they are intimitely related, one preceding the other, passing from happiness to disappoinment, to the unexpected.

Who hasn't been hopeful thinking, or dreaming, they had an unknown, rich uncle in America? That distant relative, who one day emigrated following the american dream, who doesn't have other family besides you to which he... can leave his fortune, of whom you knew nothing before, whose existence was hidden from you by your parents and uncles and suddenly the news arrives one day that you are the sole heir to his estate.

One can also take the contrary case that your American uncle is living on the street, sick, etc. And you are his only remaining relative, then what happens?.

This project is intended to illustrate the difficulty of maintaining hope—the dreams for a better and uncertain future, where everything will be there to be discovered.
