Parapnea, Bienal de la Havana 2001

The induction was carried out in English and Spanish so that the two groups would not receive contradictory instructions. The volunteers drawing on the balloons were the "engineers," and were asked to imagine structures found in the depths of the unconscious. The balloons were then handed off to the "divers," hence the title: Para- Apnea (para = having resemblance to certain features apnea = absence of breathing), who retrieved the visualized structures from the depths of the "engineers" unconscious. Invited by Los Carpinteros
