Alejandro's most recent video is composed of a fragmented text, appearing as inter-titles, interspersed with fleeting snippets of reconstructed memories. Throughout the work conjectures about the past are balanced against promises of the future. By talking about the past the artist is also talking about his wants or desires, and in this sense, talking about the past becomes a way of talking about the future.
