Sustrato índice 

Para plantear las diferentes tipologías de viaje, su forma legal y su lugar en lo económico las personas muestran el documento que hace la frontera permeable o no. La luz los describe sacándolos del fondo negro, dibuja su rostro pero no los introduce en otro contexto que el de su viaje. Datos como: el lugar de partida, el coste, el tiempo, los motivos y el medio usado para llegar, señalan el drama que supone pertenecer a un estado nación minus-soberano, en contraste con el viaje como objeto de consumo.

 

Index substrate

To present the different types of travel, their legal form and their place in the economy, people show the document that makes the border permeable or not. The light describes them by taking them out of the black background, draws their face but does not introduce them into any other context than that of their journey. Data such as: the place of departure, the cost, the time, the motives and the means used to arrive, point out the drama of belonging to a sub-sovereign nation state, in contrast to the journey as an object of consumption.
