A project about language, publics and popular culture which activates in three stages: posters in the streets, a mobile “mailbox of proverbs” for collect sayings in the streets, and a final installation displaying the process. Refranes involves an investigation into the use of language, the logic of discourse, the evolution of languages over time, while proposing a public exploration of reality conceived as a poetic gesture. This project has been done in Mexico City; San Francisco, California; and Cairo, Egypt.
