Potato head, Rosa Isabel Vazquez


Potato head, Rosa Isabel Vázquez

Rosa Isabel Vázquez builds a sensory and immersive story based on a personal experience in which, after an important dramatic situation, two autoimmune diseases awaken in her and her health begins to deteriorate. Over time, she realizes that her state of mind profoundly affects her physical state, and upon investigation, she discovers that there is a medical basis to it all, leading her to make life decisions that radically change her existence.

Potato head proposes an original journey through the recesses of our mind, a trip that takes us through a universe of shadows, of images that gradually reveal themselves as fragments of a higher entity. In the end, everything unexpectedly makes sense, although it must be the reader who solves this little puzzle in which there is no single solution.

To materialize the images of this interdisciplinary project, Rosa Isabel submerged herself in various experimental processes that led her to create ephemeral drawings on potatoes, in which photography and video became the tools to allow them to live on.

The very particular construction of this book, based on the zigzag folding of a large printed sheet, means that it has multiple readings, so the pdf includes different routes through its pages. These pages can be displayed individually or grouped in different ways. Therefore, each viewing is different and creates a new experience.
