historical imagination

"Historical Imagination" is a 3-channel video installation with photographs exploring personal memory and historical imagination as a means to rediscover current socio-cultural self-identity. The three separate channels project the past, present, and future as a transitory linear synthesis and ephemeral construction of time. These works serve to contextualize personal realities but also reflect those of a broader collective reality.

Uncertainty in whether an undocumented immigrant will ever return home one day by choice is pending hope. Hope is a strong rooted emotion conducive of transborder lives and adopting a lifestyle between two worlds as a way to keep this emotion alive. This project revisits the idea of an immigrants desire to coexist simultaneously in multiple spaces and time.
