Title: inquieta/in quiet a
• The word “inquieta” is the feminine form of “restless” in Spanish. The correct pronunciation is “een-kee-eh-tah” but I keep making the mistake of saying “in-kwhy-eh-ta”. There is no “I” or “eye” sound in the Spanish word… and the “wh” sound I keep making isn’t there either. -mrk
• “inquieta/in quiet a” is the video of a performance about the co-existence & repulsion of familiar opposites that live separated by a border inside the mind.
• hands: 93.75% Mexican & descended from migrant workers, immigrants, emigrants, plumbers, entrepreneurs, storytellers, makers, designers, and builders from north & south of a US/Mexico border that did a lot of changing through the years
