The Crazy House

This work is about the repetition and the insistence of the images. To bring back the material that had been discarded from a documentary film about Bogota; which reached my hands as an act of survival while exploring the Universidad Nacional de Colombia Archives. It is a writing with pictures and words essay, with pictures of everyday scenes that take back a new body connected with images in text that I found on my father’s archives.
