el Zócalo Memories
Summoning Nostalgia Through Amateur 8mm Film Footage
Somewhere someone raises a camera and records a present moment in their experience. It is preserved on film and years later, remote in time and space, I too observe this present moment that they have recorded. My mind and that of the person recording their present moment experience with the camera are connected through time and space by the observation of this experience. Through the vector of the observed present moment, we become co-creators of a shared experience of reality uniting past and present.

The Zócalo is the common name of the main square in central Mexico City. Prior to the colonial period, it was the main ceremonial center in the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. The plaza used to be known simply as the “Main Square” or “Arms Square”, and today its formal name is Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution Square)
