» project three: music video
guidelines: collaborative work (with ricardo hernandez) setting imagery, still and motion to "frijolero" by molotov.

concept statement: this video juxtaposes the pleasure periphery with the squater filled bario's (neighborhoods) found less than a few miles from the ocean. many residents are employed as a result of the tourist zone, so this raises a few questions. does the pleasure periphery enhance or detract from their lives? and what would their living condition be without it? the video is a collection on digital footage and photos gathered during an ethnograpic trip to mexico in march 2004.
