Synopsis
Hong Kong, one of the most developed cities of the world and with a high density of skycrapers, is where the concentration of banks and super fashion shops expand into the sea and mainland China. High ranking officials perform their daily gymnastic routine on the roof of one of the skycrapers of the island. Down in the street,there is a big demonstration of Hong Kong citizens protesting the construction of a multibillon dollars express railway, connecting Hong Kong with mainland China, that they claim it is going to destroy the rural life, and all their rice filds and villages of that area. The protesters keep their hands as rice bowls. walk slowly and lean down each 26 steps (these are the number of kilometres to be built by the express rail).
Concern continues to escalate as Hong Kong citizens wonder how they will fund these expensive projects when Hong Kong is still recovering from the subprime mortgage crisis, in addition to facing a range of social problems like rising poverty levels and the widening of the social classes.The train is going to be built.
This is a universal problem.

Synopsis
The Matadero project in 2003 was prior to the rehabilitation of large industrial complex. Gave rise to endless pictures not only of the great open spaces, rooftop and central warehouses, but spaces that have been operated in the past 10 years and erased the vestiges of its initial use towards emptying facilitate new uses.
That's why Matadero-Madrid is so significant and can somehow lead a movement to analyze, record and give value to new and existing uses of industrial architecture.
With a portion of the recorded video material, for example in drying tall ship, the author made a video showing of feminine presence fleeing and retreating the cordoned area, the camera in a panoramic 360 pann of Madrid and
digitally transformed to create new geometric spaces that suggest the process of mutation.

This program breaks the real signs in to the simulated signs which is represented by fragmentation, serialization, multiplication of images and meanings.
The visual dialogue of the broken dreams is a project where the representation of the images is captured by a still video camera, manipulated and generated by the computer with the digital palette. The altered body is a cloned artifice as the register, the mark of the memory of the dreams.
Dreams, identities, meanings.
The structure of this video " by dreams" is articulated in three parts based in the women´s life where she claims the right to develop her dreams, and to break her silence, to register her identity her own territory, to expand the idea of growth, to rebuilt a new idealistic prototype, to follow a path of alteration of the establish order to a different code, a different language, to make her own rules. This new path, is a new way to create her own personal life, its own space, a room of her own.
