MEMORY FRAGMENT 01 – TEARS IN RAIN (BY ROSA MONTERO)
Bruna awoke with a start and remembered that she was going to die.
But not right now.
A whiplash of pain shot between her temples. The apartment was in semidarkness and the afternoon light had faded on the other side of the window. Dazed, she looked out over the familiar urban landscape, the towers, the flat rooftops, and the hundreds of windows over which shadows were falling, as the pain inside her head continued to pound.
Tears in Rain, Chapter 1, by Rosa Montero.
So begins Tears in Rain, the book that inspired my art installation (called as Mostero’s book), with that terrible certainty about Bruna’s death…
Tomorrow Thursday 07 you are invited to immerse yourself with the book’s author and me in Scenario 02: “Madrid 2109”, which is the one following Bruna Husky, the female replicant detective protagonist, through 16 present fragments of her memories.
