Shot in the volcanic and arid landscape of Lanzarote, the slide projection presents a sequence of post-apocalyptic landscape images that propose the phantom existence of a record for a possible future memory. Using an elaborate photographic method, the slides where partially degraded by exposing different film stocks to a variety of household chemicals as they reacted with one another, causing drips, different degrees of loss of detail and a dominant color in each film stock.
