"Vázquez Rodríguez explores sociopolitical issues from an autobiographical point of view. Visión Doble was inspired on her ongoing Dream series and incorporates super 8 and video footage from Puerto Rico, Boston and “in between” places taken over the span of a decade. The voyeuristic perspective of an outsider with camera-as-shield contrasts her own occasional appearance on film, referencing how in dreams we sometimes see ourselves. Footage appropriated from the mass media is combined with intimate takes and the landscape."
Liz Munsell
