My mom asked me if I could take some pictures of her leather jacket for Wallapop (a Spanish web service for buying and selling used items) and I came up with this video.
The jacket it is still available, we did not sell it yet.

“Comparativa Gestual” is project about different body language interpretations. Body language is one of the most basic forms of human communication (nonverbal communication) where thoughts, intentions, or feelings are expressed by physical behaviors, such as facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eyes movement, touch and the use of space. Interpretations may vary from country to country, or culture to culture. There is controversy on whether body language is universal.

Water from the Mediterranean Sea in Stamford, 2014. This sample contains water from the Mediterranean Sea. Through the process of evaporation, the water will turn into vapor, and inevitably, into humidity. The visitors of the exhibition will inhale the vapor of the water, making it circulate throughout the exhibition space, contributing to the generation of condensation and enabling the formation of clouds in the upper layers of the atmosphere. The seawater from Barcelona will turn into Stamford vapor. Art project for “It Narratives: The Movement of Objects as Information” curated by Brian Droitcour and Zanna Gilbert.
