Work in Progress

I’ll write to you. A super long letter, like in an old fashioned novel
— Haruki Murakami, After Dark

New-media, site-specific novel. Biblioteca Jose Vasconcelos, CDMX.

The piece consists of a series of letters and soundscapes dispersed amongst the books of the Biblioteca Jose Vasconcelos in Mexico City. Readers will have to navigate through the library to find and piece together the various letters that make up the novel. A one-sided correspondence between a woman writing to her late husband, the letters trace the history of her relationship with husband while also probing the history of the disappearances that have increasingly plagued Mexico’s history over the past half century. A meditation on memory, forgetting, disappearance and the history of writing itself.
