A Mexican farm in the tropics. Recorded voices and compiled scans of people and places allow invisible stories and memories to emerge that reach as far back as the French colonial period of the 19th century. With her “archaeo-astronomy,” a method that brings technology and nature into an enlightening unity, the artist exposes the spirit of a lost paradise.
