When My Grandfather Visited the Crater
Experimental Video (video-micrography + super 8 film) 1974 - 2022

About the film from the artist:
Tijuana Baja California/Chicxulub Yucatán
Process in collaboration with my post-human grandfather: the scientist Jose A. Zorrilla. After 18 years of his death I dreamed of him. The next day I found a reel of super 8 film that he recorded when they visited some Mayan archeological sites from Yucatan. Parallely, I was using a microscope to film water and matter from the cenotes (limestone caves with water) that form the fifth ring of Chicxulub crater. I was investigating the region that received the asteroid that provoked the dinosaur metamorphosis when the mammals evolved therefore the human species arose.
My grandfather traveled in 1974, secretly he wanted to remember a research that he was part of many years ago. They were looking for the relation of Mayan cosmology with matter, life and empty space. He was also remembering that planets are alive and they interact with us as planet Earth, mixing their chemical elements provoking changes of different scales in time.
I tried to communicate with my late grandfather through letters, and he responded with his photographic archive and documents. This is how I understood that he tried to forget about his research because of my grandmother’s religion. During our dialogue he felt free to share many things that he learned of Mayan beliefs and colonialism effects. This knowledge was repressed when he was alive. With our conversation we conclude that living beings are fragments of planet Earth.

Ana Andrade was our Bread & Salt IMPACT Artist in Residence November-January 2024

Always FREE
Hosted by

Featured Artist: Leah
Bio:
Leah is a poet, pardon her language.
She believes dancing is a form of screaming and that god loves yelling matches.
She collects soap scent memories.

She sees rainbow stack colors as wrongway flipped smiles best viewed upside down from monkeybar or tree branch kneebacks.
She's heard food is the proof that hell isn't real.
She loves candles and does not light them because she despises having foreign substances on her hands, and have you ever rubbed your fingers together after handling a paraffin candle? Yuck. She welcomes solutions to this problem if you ever see her at an open mic.
She has books available to purchase if you would like. She doesn't know where the books are coming from or how they keep appearing in the trunk of her car, but she'll keep selling them as long as they do.
She wishes you bedsheet whisper quieter than the rain outside the forest picture window. She values your time and hopes to earn it. She thanks your heart for its service.

Open mic follows.
