guts is the third output of my work series on forgetting. It is a digestive system, an ‘object’ in transition and its contents change in process. They are interwoven in layers: the outtakes (or guts) of my project to forget as analogue travel documentations projected on two-sided screens made out of transparent paper, quotes by fiction writers on forgetting to be read as marquee on a monitor, printed out photos of trivial objects washed ashore by the sea and an immersive and extensive soundscape created by the musician and photographer Sara Rafael (aka Jejuno).
