EROS Y THANATOS

Video Installation 2007

 

The Eros and Thanatos is a dichotomy: life and death, being present both of them in some situations. These concepts may have different readings. People give them meaning and perceive them differently according to their lifes, their experiences, their culture, environment and religion. Many see life where others see death.
The installation shows this theme with an experimental and poetic video inside a phone cabin. The phone is a basic media, common to many people, where news, feelings and emotions are passed, where Eros and Thanatos also is lived.
