'to yourself' is an installation made up of layers of found and manipulated sound and image created during a residency in the small town of Jilotepec and its neighbouring Mexico City and performed by a laptop. Amongst the noise, the shadows and the voices that the artist encountered are melodic experiments created in response to the wonderfully precarious environment. DIY instruments, software, pedals and slow moving image act as a blanket to the voice notes sent in Spanish that investigate the unanswered question of why so many female artists find themselves creating in Mexico.
