A book about the phase of "interval" that can affects both the individual and a universal generation; about the particular experience and confrontation with different cultures and social orders.

What is the project?

During a 5 month stay in the UK, I am doing a project called "interval". It's about the possibility of establishing a relationship from the same state of interval between individual and generational, linking the particularity of experience with identity or confrontation between different cultures and social orders. For example how affect in the same individual two events as distant as the announced opening of the Cuban government and the struggle for a radical independence holding Scotland, where I am currently. All selected information (texts, photos, reproductions and original works) are intended to conclude in book form manufactured by participating international artists based in the UK. It will then be presented and distributed free in Cuba in March 2013.

Why apply for financial support for this project?

The text book also includes photographs, illustrations, art works reproductions and original screen prints. It´s realization exceeds my chances of an independent project and is not intended for profit.
As the book is being created in an intermediate zone of English and Spanish the desire is to have a fully bilingual edition, as it contains information originally in both languages​​. The translation will involve additional expenditure. Another form of support might be interested in doing a translation. For this and any other comments about the book we can communicate via email: lestorzy@gmail.com

Who I am?
I developed my work mainly in painting, video and texts for exhibition catalogs. With the project "interval" I intend to create a work that allows me mobility for various disciplines. Through this address can see some of my works:
