• The bunker This sequence was shot in an abandoned  military bunker  in Cuba. It was presented to us as destined to one  of the infamous nuclear missiles of the 1962 crisis, although we have no elements to confirm this hypothesis. It was nevertheless a sinister and fascinating place, huge enough to contain a big launching pad. The […] jo pixel No responses 2014-12-11

Gli spazi vuoti e normalmente irrisolti, qui diventano giardini, orti, estensioni di lamiera. Alla serialità delle architetture risponde la personalizzazione attraverso il lavorio quotidiano degli abitanti. Le inferriate alle finestre di ferro battuto o di tondino da […] jo pixel No responses 2008-06-07
  • La Habana INT/EXT March 2006. Invited to attend to the Novena Bienal de La Habana, we spent five weeks in Cuba in  spring 2006, preparing a live media performance to be presented in the context of the international art event. That provided the opportunity to explore a different incarnation of the late modernist periphery, which is a […] jo pixel No responses 2006-03-07
