With this work, I wanted to create interest in my own scars that for me made history. I like to show it as an experience. Things are happening to everybody all the time, in my case I like to show and tell the story, wake up memories.

The audio and the images go together, on one side the radio station, and interesting banalities that the doctors say in the middle of all the images. Everything is under the filter of what they imagine while they cut my skin and flesh.
