2012, HERE WE ARE

This is the present: a disillusion and a transition. This couple of images dance with each other and ask us: How much does present last? What it is present made of? How many decisions construct our present?

This is 2012: a map with an indecipherable location, brief instructions about what position to take, a back that resists in showing the face, a placard searching for a “Hero”, a frantic and uncontrollable laughter, an obsession to preserve and store instants and a woman apologizing for blindness in face of crisis. How much will this present last?
