BELA RUÍNA // BLUE RUIN (2014)

Video-essay developed during the Master's degree in Visual Cultures.

The work departs from the idea of depicting ruins as something other than abandonment or deterioration. Through a research and compilation of different materials (archive footage, my own pictures, drawings and representations of projects that were never built) I tried to portray them simultaneously as a symbol of past ambitions and future possibilities.
