From the MINIMENTALS project of ultra short films. Through intense observation and unexpected connections, these cinematic haikus transform ordinary moments into reveries that blur the line between inner and outer, real and imagined worlds. In the process, they invite us to rediscover a layer of experience which is often overlooked in the frantic pace of contemporary life. Ongoing project of over 60 films to date, presented as live improvised event curated in collaboration with the audience, gallery installation, and mobile app (upcoming).

This video addresses the impossibility of finding some objective rules or criteria for judging works in contemporary art from Art. The postmodern era imposed a rupture of the canons of aesthetic judgment that previously have been aimed at art. With relativsm, every person with “authority” creates her/his own rules. It is the action of measuring art that creates “stars” (estrellas) or “those who crash” (estrellados).
