Museum of Memory and Human Rights, Santiago, Chile

Series In Situ

In medicine it is a pathology. It is a negative utopia, where reality runs in terms antagonistic to those of an ideal society. They are closed or claustrophobic spaces.
A dystopian scenario is performed, alluding to different spaces where this condition takes place. Inspired by the peep shows (the Miroteca), the pieces of domestic employees (Nanas), the new architectural constructions and the dungeons.
I'm locked for more than 7 hours in a small wooden cabin, located on the edge of the Museum and Cathedral Street. On the walls of the room there are 8 magic eyes, through which passers-by can look inwards, but I can not see out.
