Retratos/Portraits, examined blood, 2005

                                     Documentation of the work in video

`Portraits` is a Series of crystal plates (use them in Laboratories to make clinical tests). On them I put blood sheets from different dead people. I wrote texts in the blood that only be seen using a microscope. The text in the blood is a supposition about how were this person and his life: nutritious habits, sickness, vices, as well as some characteristics of his society.

This supposition had a scientific basis that is a previous investigation of blood carried out by a team of specialists in Clinic Laboratories. In this way, we got as much as possible from this body substance in order to have a complete information and image of the person and his life.

My objective is to find another point of view of my society, alternative to those from the power structures.
