4-channel video installation, US, MX, CO, 2011
In the middle of the Woods a House. 4 spaces: The Entry, The Hall, The Dining Room and a Cellar. In the middle of the darkness a Night. A home in the middle of the silence of the night. The distant light of an unknown activity. An unknown place. How dangerous are the roads that lead to there? What dangerous could be an increasingly large light in the middle of dry trees? Or the brightness of an eye that looks away? A group of people come inside the house and start to act decidedly in every space, moved by an aim that stands endlessly enigmatic in front of us. No dialog but everybody knows what to do. Who are they? What do they want? What do they have within themselves that generate this entire atmosphere that seems so different?
