During January 2017 I took over the gallery space of the program 1 mes 1 artista, Mexico City, I made 40 cameras from simple materials I could find, borrow or buy in the streets surrounding the gallery, this mostly involved cardboard and reading glasses.
The idea being to introduce a cinematic spectacle into the street, from one angle, but from all the other angles, the group of cameras blended in, just another bundle of objects being pushed through the streets.
From a far, I have admired the diabolito and the physical commitment so many people make to pushing and pulling objects through the city everyday.
Many of the diabolitos, have bundles of objects wrapped in plastic sheets, that to me suggest an interior space, which inturn suggest a camera, and so I thought, could these objects being moved through the street become cameras.
