Todo Es Temporal – Medellin, Colombia
TODO ES TEMPORAL is an all access pass into the current state of affairs of the city of Medellin, Colombia as told by relevant local characters and thus, those responsible for expressing their reality. This raw and minimalistic piece provides hope for those that find themselves in places where their current situation seems insuperable.
In December 2016 thru January 2017 I travelled to the city of Medellin, Colombia with the intent to meet artists and through their words educate myself regarding their current state of affairs. I wanted to see for myself how Medellin has overcome their violent past and investigate what role, if any, the artists played to manifest the rebirth of their city.
With the help of a local, Manuel T. Contreras, I was able to achieve and experience more than I ever imagined. I was able to spend time with many artists but most importantly they were from different generations as well as diverse disciplines.
Through a series of unfortunate events, I lost almost all my gear. But the external hard drives survived. The project continued thanks to the support of the network that had built around me. At the time it was too much for me to endure alone.
