Vigilia / Night Watch
Through his relationship with a watchman at a State carpentry warehouse, the artist obtained wood to build a roofed post for the watchmen who work there.
Generate a paradoxically useful fact. The watching post was placed in a zone suitable for controlling activities of a similar nature to the one that the artist used to create it.
Watchmen have a covered shelter. The project made use of and exposed the ways in which everyday citizens in Cuba bypass the system to address their needs. The watching post is still on use.
