Installation that shows a video in which Martínez captured the result of a score-settling in Guadalajara, during a sunny, music-filled day among people living near the crime scene. Martínez has added an extra layer of audio to the scene’s sound, highlighting the possibility of it being fictional and analyzing the citizens’ reactions to these events, which ranged from terror to disinterest. A tape to keep people from entering crime scenes is used to recreate the artist’s position as he recorded, similar to mass media strategies, which have made scenes such as this part of our daily lives.
