Duration: 5 days.


I put two patches on my eyes to prevent to can see uninterruptedly for 5 days holding a banner hanging from my neck that said:


I DON’T WANT
TO SEE
MY REALITY

I continued my daily routine, attending classes at IUNA (National Universitary Institute of Art), entering the classroom to not seeing the projected images or my classmates. I installed myself on the pedestrian street Florida on wednesday afternoon to not seeing people. I went to the Borges Cultural Center to not seeing an art exhibition, and i walked the Galerias Pacifico not seeing their shops.

In the same way, i did not see the television, i did not see what i ate or who are around me. Did not see with who i went to bed.

To displace me long distances, i was helped by friends who guided me by the streets, buses and subways.
