To Live by Air is a project Alejandro
began working on a couple of years ago. When you don't have a job or enough
money, they say in Colombia that you must eat air. His project in Colombia
involved street vendors, whereas in Biella Alejandro has asked workers,
both those under contract and those who work illegally, to answer questions
related to work and their experiences of "living on air".
Alejandro is also involved in a collaborative project at the train station
in Biella, where he and Isabel want to transform the waiting room into
a sitting-room. A station is a place for waiting, and Alejandro and Isabel
asked people what they think of while they wait. Their stories will be
hung together with their portrait inside the station.
A third project is connected to El Puente and Alejandro calls
it the Travelling Backpack Show. The idea is to collect the work from
the other residents at Unidee, preferably easily transportable material
like computer files, CDs and so on, and give a set of this to each and
every one, so that the pieces can be shown all over the world.
