El lugar de la memoria, project. 2005 – 2022

El lugar de la memoria explores the poetic and political relations that converge in the Puerto Rico’s Police Department document that officially announces the disappearance of my younger brother, event that happened on 2005 and remains unresolved. Through this work I am exploring how to deconstruct the document file photograph as a criminal icon, and how to relate paradoxically his violent erasure with the infinite multiplication of the file image through the web.
