2005‐2013, video archive, reverse readings of the 18 political constitutions of Ecuador (76 h. approx.)

http://www.cuenta-regresiva.net

The project consisted in reading backwards all the political constitutions approved since the founding of the Republic of Ecuador, starting from the last phoneme of the last word of the 1998 constitution, which was the one ruling at the moment in which the project started, up until the first phoneme of the first word in the first constitution (1830). The readings were carried out in several public settings and recorded in sound and video. After each reading, the recordings were edited backwards, in a new revearsal of time and space.
