Velazquez's briliant creation - a mix of metal and lace paper, photographs and translucent papers, illuminated case- play with the shifting perspective of reality that matches and incorporates Segovia's powerful poem of the coordinates that define our life, our relation to the world, and our death, the three axis that are: I, Here, Now : Yo, aqui, ahora.
