The music was composed using computer and audio software.

untitled (portugueses), 16 frames, 30×40 cm each
This work appears as a comment on Leonel Moura’s Portugal series, where the artist ellects already famous personalities of the portuguese history and culture like Amália Rodrigues, and Fernando Pessoa, placing the word “Portugal” (white on a black rectangle) over the eyes or mouth of each personality’s picture.
Portugueses shows eleven black and white faces of unknown portuguese people of all ages. I printed the images in my b/w photo lab at home, out of more than thousand glass negatives I had found buried on an open field near a prision in Lisbon in 1987. They document portuguese prisioners ranging from the1910’s to the 1940’s.
The word portugueses (portuguese in english) was placed in day-glo stickers, one word in each person’s forehead.
