My project The Virtual Afterlife was in radio twice!

The first time was in KPFA Radio San Francisco, in the Radio 2050 the Saturday, October 4th, 2008. Thanks  to Darren D’Leon (the interviewer), Río Yanez (curator), Candi Farlice (artist) and Sally Arce (P.R.).

The second time was in the program Crosscurrents (KALW) of 10/27/2008, broadcasted in KPFA Radio San Francisco at 6:30 pm. Thanks, Kristi Coale




A crab lives in my throat,
Well … Lived.
When the fear disappears,
There were no more words to eat
Nor oxygen,
The heart stole the cry,
The breath also,
Poor! Too small is my chest,
For the crab
And their pincers scape for an eye.

Have you ever felt the bite
that wakes you up crying, mourning?

A silence lives in your house,
It has just moved
With me.

Y me miré al espejo,
Y el mar salió de mis ojos
Y fui libre
De ser tu despojo.

Starfish / Estrella de mar

And I looked me in the mirror,
And the sea came out of my eyes
And I was free
Of your remnant to be.

P.D.: Dibujo y poema de Ytaelena López. Video también.

I like the nobility
Of those who lose their lives in battle
Especially if they do it in front of me
On the grill


Me gusta la nobleza
De quién pierde su vida en batalla
Principalmente si se encuentra frente a mí
A la parrilla

(Dibujo y poema de Ytaelena López)
