He decidido permanecer en silencio [2004]

i have decided to remain silent is a three-installation project made in-situ for a public university building in mexico. the intervention took place in the main walked-through areas of the university and its aim was to create a dialogue between the three pieces, with the building and the people that work, study and visit there.

this project uses only appropriated words [installation part one], images [installation part three], and sounds, re-contextualizing them through editing.

the common denominator of this project is insufficiency. inadequacy to communicate with others through its own means, with its own language. he decidido permanecer en silencio is, then, about dialogue, language and mostly silence as needed subterfuges for insufficiency.

the second installation of this project was a sound piece installed in a tunnel-like passage that communicates two patios [click on any image below to enlarge]. the soundtrack consists of voice-overs from dubbed tv shows over a soundtrack composed by jónsi from sigur rós.
