Regarding the title of the project, the author as an inspiration uses the word “Bruja” (in Spanish) which means “witch”, however unlike most European and close cultures where this word has often been perceived negatively and almost "heretically” (under the influence of the dominant male hierarchy that determines the stereotypes of women and female position), the same word in the Spanish-American culture and tradition has a completely different meaning.

“Organisms II' is a dynamic installation piece owing its polymorphous properties to the laws of physics of the fluids. The tinted liquid from the medical transfusion bags flows through the channels carved in the small Plexiglas plates which are shaped reminiscent of capillaries of the organism’s bloodstream; then it drops over the small piles of toilet paper, thus creating color dots of different sizes.
Cut the Strings is an artwork that continues the concept of Miov’s previous work Pull the Strings:

Same Sex Marriages is a celebration of love, happiness, and hope. The show presents couples in sharp focus - some fully embracing traditional wedding iconography; others subverting iconographic conventions from within, using humor and unexpected composition to appropriate an age-old institution in their own terms. The result is a visible oscillation between a jubilant acceptance and utter defiance of conventions. With its iconic monuments and buildings, the city offers a beautiful background. The outcome is an appropriation of the public landscape for personal use, creating images that are truly personal, yet transcend a personal narrative to become representative of an era.
From Sitting to Standing will present music in both a traditional concert hall setting (where the audience is seated) and in a underground music club setting (where the audience is standing). The audience will move between different rooms in the gallery at specific points in the show to transition between the concert hall and music club settings.

In our upcoming production, Ladies First will offer a personal reflection on various aspects of this connection, from comparative performance of the musical piece with a football (soccer) match through explorations of sports which are traditionally performed and rehearsed to music–such as skating, and capoeira, to setting music to a live beat of a ping pong match, and much more. It will be an evening-long celebration of the two not-so-different performance forms, which touch so many lives around the globe through the universal language of passion and lifelong commitment.

When one watches most films or television programs, half or more of the communication is the sound, not the picture. For most films, a blind person hearing only the sound will understand more than a deaf person watching the same film (without subtitles). Yet many beginning digital cinema makers tend to focus on the “shots” and other visual aspects and not worry about the sound. Thus many of these low-budget or no-budget digital films suffer from poor sound quality that weakens the film.
