Tajo is an installation which literally and metaphorically references the river system - the Tajo - of which the Madrid region and even Madrileños themselves form part. A meticulously crafted video animation is projected onto 180 used plastic bottles, converting the bottles themselves into small screen, while casting distorted abstract images onto walls of the exhibition space. Tajo reflects all Madrileños, themselves made up primarily of water, and by extension connected to the Tajo River system.
