Mientras Dormía (While I Slept)
Last summer, my mother had a rupture in her esophagus and suffered a life threatening infection between her heart and her lung, alongside with her lung collapsing. Thankfully she was at the hospital for a different procedure when they realized this had happened and they were able to operate immediately, but she teetered between life and death for a couple of weeks. She was induced into a coma and connected to more machines and tubes than any human should. This was a traumatic experience for my mother and our family, as she was in the hospital for about 6 weeks.
This project is based on a journey of dreams and memories that my mother went through while she was in the hospital.
