Marisa’s statement

“To dissimulate is to feign not to have what one has.
To simulate is to feign to have what one hasn’t.
One implies a presence, the other an absence.”
Jean Baudrillard, 1981, Simulacra and Simulations

Photography as proof of the real used as a presence and registration of identities, transformed through the absence of memory.
A simulacrum of an experience through the creation of a fictional story for real images of moments and people that existed in a certain time and space. Story told through a character who participates in these moments, however, is not portrayed being his presence associated with a voyeur, intended to let the viewer identify and imagine his own story.
