2013 Audiovisual installation 90 x 6L water bottles, audio and video projection Co-authored with Raquel Checa 540L / 54‘’ is a sculptural and audiovisual project with ecological complaint character. The extractive exploitation (illegal) will abate very significantly the flow of several rivers, dragging irreversibly the valuable ecosystems in which they are located. The installation consists in a prism from 90x6L water bottles. A 540 liters block, the same 540 liters will be extracted from the mountain every 54 seconds to be bottled. Over these bottles a video is projected with images of moving water of rivers affected by the extraction. The memory of the ripples and reflections, stones and junks, the memory of the landscape now surrounds this great mass of snatched water, dissected, classified and stacked for distribution.
