Uncertainty and Failure (Incertidumbre y Fracaso)

These artists explore their experience of a transnational encounter, through their interests in language, sound, video, memory and ritual. The soundtrack is a collection of words they exchanged that were generated by this experience and later by their reflections on the documentation.
