Tres torres (2014)

Three channel video with costumes. 10:20 min. (stills)
Filmed in the Historic Center and Tlatelolco, Mexico City
Project Room, 2014
SOMA, Mexico City

For this project, I dressed up as three iconic Mexico City buildings – The Banobras Tower, The Latinoamericana Tower, and the Telmex Telephone Tower – to create a three channel video. In embodying each tower, my mission was to approach the building I was dressed as and to playfully engage with people in the street using a recognizable icon for the surrounding public. The costumes covered my whole body save for my legs, creating an image of half woman, half displaced inhabitable object.
