Video de Instalación (Español)
Video of Installation (English)
Installation awarded in two categories by the New York Foundation for the Arts.
In this video-work, the arts and history of the native Taínos of the Caribbean and the fantastic images of artist Carlos Sueños are merged in a collage representing a projection into our inner realm into the future.
The text by José Luis Colón-Santiago takes us deep within our inner reality:
"We journey with electrons and music charming us into a mysterious movable feast. The chapel of dreams, clay, paper delivers us into a spiraling image into a holistic and meaningful universe."
The original musical score by Eliezer Parrilla and Ivonne Petrovich:
"... garner and disperses the images...the voices of the Areyto (Taíno dance ritual) resisting dissolution, woven into our history..."
The 10 minute video is designed for hard of hearing audiences and general audiences, and is available in English and Spanish. The actual installation is also available for rentals and traveling.
