The Current Time Memorial
In this project I intend to look retrospectively to the current time.What we do today belongs to the past, what we are today belongs to the past, the discourse we hold today belongs to the past, we belong to the past, we are still hostages of that past that has taken over us and makes us resist to an urgent change of references and behaviors. In this work I don’t intend to repeat constant warnings for the end of times, for the tragic future that awaits us. I want to skip this step and imagine later on, when we are already free of the catastrophe because we became the catastrophe itself. We can finally incorporate it, wear it, and be called to assume its causes and live its consequences.The recipient will be the spectator who will regard a future tribute to his present life.
