Urine Readings (Installation views at the XXX Sao Paulo Biennale)
18 mattresses, sound, text
For the project "Urine Readings", new toys and crib mattresses were exchanged for old, stained mattresses. The used beds where collected from five different Orphanages around the greater Sao Paulo region.
The mattresses were then shown to a diverse group of psychics rooted on Spiritism or Afro-Brazilian traditions known as Candomble. Each psychic would do a reading of a mattress and express his/her vision about the past, present or future of the child´s that slept on them.
The audio recording of each reading can be heard from speakers installed in each mattress.
