Andrea Coyotzi Borja, A bit of a missunderstanding, 2013

"Sometimes you are listening some music and you just cannot help to imagine a situation developing in your mind. That is what my videos are about, constructing an idea that at the moment may seem impossible, but that is  just in the edge of becoming real. Asking ourselves “why not”, doing it, seeing it in front of our eyes and out of our heads. Wondering, loosing ourselves and then looking around to recognize something, and from that point start to create. Unknowing and forgetting the stablished."
