un minuto de silencio

A Minute of Silence, explores of the mourning process and the inability to deal with feelings of lost and death. During different visits to the park, different people were asked to do a minute of silence for someone they have lost. The video presents a split image, each side with one person doing a minute of silence. The image changes every other minute, presenting 24 persons, each one performing its own tribute or individual ritual of remembrance. While each person was recorded individually, and the action was performed as part of an individual process, the work is also an exploration of the mourning process as a cultural and collective act, exploring the possibility of a collective tribute and the creation of a collective memory.
