Memories come to us, they arise from hidden layers of our life experience to guide our conscious self. I often confront my own memories in the experience of living in a city: an old wall brings forth what I though had been forgotten, inhabiting a house guides me back to past lives, the sight of an old factory carries the sense of a younger version of myself, or the tombstones in a cemetery speak of the living. My animation process is, in a sense, the act of peeling the layers of the visible city to reveal the memories they carry on me.

CV: Cecilia Traslaviña is a visual artist, animator and magister in literature. She works as professor and researcher in the Department of Visual Arts at the Javeriana University in Bogotá, Colombia.
