Pensión Eternity, diptych photography  (68,89 x 25,59 inches), 2010

This photography work is part of a researcher process under the generic title of Self-Denied. This work concludes that the critic and politic strength of each image consists in owning, within its symbolic power, an auto-negation factor. In Pensión Eternity converges two kind of strong denies. The first one is about the space and we perceive it in the humbleness of a room, similar as the cell of a monk, which refers us to the Spanish mysticism. The second negation in the diptych upholds a technological character: a television set broadcasts its interferences in the narrow room, with the glass of the window as the lonely witness. This artistic event disturbs us from that double emptiness that invites us to reflect about mass media and everyday life.
