picado fino
Las cosas son y no son
Speaker, sound
2"x2"
2012

This piece was a small speaker embedded in the wall.
The gritty recording is from an Argentine movie called "Picado Fino".
The voice is of Ana's, a young girl who is at a cafe talking to her boyfriend.
Her voice is soft and sensual.
It was a whisper from the wall.

She said:

" Ahora no, te tengo, ahora no, las cosas son y no son, lamentablemente, al mismo tiempo, Thomas, te tenes que depertar, la vida no es un sueno, las personas sienten."

Translation: “now I don’t, I have you, now I don’t, things are and are not, sadly, at the same time, Thomas, you have to wake up, and life is not a dream, people feel”
