15’00, Mexico, 2023

Rooted in an anonymous residential building in Mexico, one that has been lived in, earthquake-destroyed, abandoned and restored for 70 years, this film borrows “wrinkles” as a conceptual thread to investigate the aging of architecture. Dancing between observation and imagination, it explores the camera as a spatial tool to braid embodied data with empirical research. From matters to actions, between structures and bodies, an alternative literacy is composed that breaks the binary of before/after in architecture design, and constructs a collective authorship that dwells in the easily unaccountable acts of everyday care.
